Hello, Bruin movers and shakers! I hope you all had a wonderful summer, filled with fun activities. Now that we are back for fall it’s time to get back to the grind! But just because the quarter can be a little overwhelming sometimes doesn’t mean your movement has to be too! Here are some amazing new things that UCLA has to offer to (pumpkin) spice things up and keep you moving!
1. Fitness Assessments
You know how you should get a physical every year so that you’re certain your health is in check? Well you should be doing the same for your fitness! Even if you know what types of routines you should do to make progress when exercising, it’s always nice to double-check with some trained professionals.
Lucky for you, UCLA Recreation has got you covered! On Thursday, October 26, from 11 am to 1 pm in the Court of Sciences, UCLA Recreation will be out on the grass performing fitness checks! For more information and to sign up, check out this link!

2. Bruin BikeShare

Bruin Bike Share offers students, faculty, and staff the use of bikes for a small fee. There are loads of options in the bike share programs and the bikes are located at multiple locations on campus.

3. Free Yoga
Did someone say free? What does a college student love more than free stuff? (Answer: absolutely nothing!)
If you’ve ever been interested in trying out yoga or just want a free option for weekly yoga, come check out our Flexible Fridays where we have sessions on campus at the Court of Sciences and Sunset Recreation, in additional to the Hedrick Movement Studio on the Hill.
If you are a bit hesitant about yoga being the right fit for you, DEFINITELY check it out! Yoga is a great way to both relieve stress and embrace the world of mindfulness. Be on the lookout soon for our article interviewing other students and staff who love the program. For more information on the schedule and the program, check out our link here!
