The program has multiple workouts and methods on how to help cut back on a few unwanted pounds.
“Its trial by error,” campus recreation wellness coordinator Leanne Kulchawik said.
She and her team have done local research on other weight rooms and training facilities to compare other programs. As the SAU training program grows the school plans to hire additional student workers.
Kulchawik wants the campus to know that there is a cost for the program. The cost for the program starts at $10 and going as high as $315 depending on how many sessions are paid for. The cost can be split between a group of individuals that would like to get in shape together.
The cost of the sessions goes to paying the student workers who will be conducting the program. The students can use the work experience to put on their resume for when they enter the work force.
