Want to get a start on those new year health and wellness resolutions? Georgia Gwinnett College’s (GGC) School of Science and Technology is offering a chance for individuals to work on their personal fitness.

The exercise science program at GGC seeks volunteers to participate in a free 12-week exercise program. The program will help exercise science students sharpen their hands-on skills, while gaining experience in a practical fitness setting. Volunteers will undergo a pre-training and post-training fitness assessment, which will include:

  • Blood pressure
  • Body composition
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Muscular strength
  • Balance
  • Flexibility

Following the pre-training assessment, participants will begin a 12-week personalized fitness training program for one hour each Monday and Wednesday between 5-6 p.m., from January 30 through April 26. To participate, volunteers must be healthy adults with no major health conditions.

For more information and to volunteer, contact Dr. Lauren Tapp at @email.
