Looking for help with a home exercise program?


Contributed by Sean Reilley

The Fitness Center's training staff has put together four home fitness “tracks” that can be adapted for participants at any fitness level.  The four tracks being offered include: Functional Fitness, Core & Cardio, Basic Strength Training, and Bodybuilding.  This is a great option for those looking to stay active at home with little to no equipment needed. 

Please sign-up here. 

Once you’ve signed up you will be invited to a Facebook group for your track and will have access to video tutorials and weekly live Q&A sessions with our trainers. Please see below for the track descriptions:




This group is for people who want to add muscle mass and pump up their heart rate in a fun and home-friendly environment. We will use bodyweight and household objects to target different muscle groups.  This group is open to all fitness levels, including experienced bodybuilders and newbies who want to build some muscle!


Strength Training:

This group will provide exercise programming for those that are looking to develop muscular strength. Strength training is a form of resistance training that will stimulate the muscular and nervous systems to adapt to be able to move heavier loads. Since most of us do not have any external resistance to work with right now other than maybe some textbooks, we will be doing more volume than typical in a strength program. This is to provide the systems enough stimulus to continue to grow and progress.

Core and Cardio:

The Cardio and Core program is intended to get your heart pumping and improve endurance. If you are an avid runner or enjoy performing exercises for a long duration with a moderate intensity; then this program is for you! Included in this program are moderate intensity days, with a focus more on circuits, and low intensity days with a focus more on endurance. Both days include a core finisher to assist you in strengthening and conditioning your core!

Functional Fitness:

This group will be delivering home based programming that will incorporate aspects of strength training, cardio, and interval training. The programming will be modifiable to equipment available, home environments, and all fitness levels.
