Women's Exercise Nights

Women on Weights, Women only Swim programs target women's fitness 

St. Cloud State Campus Recreation has put together two exercise series geared toward women this February.

The Women on Weights (WOW) program is a women's weightlifting program guided by a female student worker in the Fitness Center. The goal of the program is to assist women in improving posture, increasing strength, losing body mass and improving confidence with a female instructor. The Fitness Center will be closed to males during the program.

Campus Recreation's Women Only Swim program is about building community, confidence, and fun while making a splash. Female lifeguards and first responder will be used if need. The pool will be closed to males during the program.

No membership is required for either program. Just check in at the Welcome Desk of Campus Recreation.

"Women lifting weights and swimming comes down to empowerment," said Campus Recreation Director Calvin Diggs. "Women empowering women to take agency over their bodies, take control of their workouts and collectively create an inclusive space for those with the passion and curiosity for working out and swimming."

Taking the first, and often scary step, into the weight room/swimming pool could begin next month, he said.
