During the month of February, the Peers Advocating Wellness for Students is hosting its first spinning program. PAWS aims to promote the health and wellness of all students on the Assumption campus. Spinning, or cycling, is an exercise that improves cardiovascular health, muscle strength, stamina, flexibility and posture. It also decreases stress levels, as well as the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression, diabetes and obesity. Spinning is great for people of all ages.
It is something that can be done for beginners or those recovering from injury at low intensity. It can also be a rigorous activity that provides a demanding workout. Spinning can be done both indoors and outdoors. It is also a good alternative to driving, as it promotes physical health, as and decreases the amount of pollution in the air.
