The Kinesiology Club may be a great place to start for students looking for an organization encouraging healthy lifestyles.

“We have the best job in the world,” said Dawn Brooks, K-Club adviser, at the Kinesiology Club Meet and Greet Sept. 18 in the Candler Physical Education Center. With more than 30 students in attendance, Brooks addressed the benefits of joining.

Being a part of the K-Club is “great for networking and encouraging fellow group members; it is a place where we put the needs of students first,” Brooks said.

The club, which promotes physical fitness and wellness, offers a place for kinesiology majors to get involved with the local and campus community.

The club is open to all students. Members and kinesiology faculty encourage each other to live healthier lives.

The members sponsor several fitness events, such as dodgeball tournaments, boot camps, 5- and 10-mile runs, glow-in-the-dark basketball and racquetball tournaments.

Students can join online at www.orgsync.com. Once students complete the sign-up process, they can attend the meetings in room 126 of Candler on the first and third Thursday of each month.

“All we ask from our members is commitment, to attend the meetings and volunteer for sponsored events,” Brooks said.

Members who stay committed receive help with healthy-living journeys and may be eligible for rewards such as a trip to the Texas Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Convention, an annual convention in Galveston “committed to the development of knowledge and programs that promote active, healthy lifestyles and enhanced skilled aesthetic motor performance,” according to www.tahperd.org
