Maria Hernandez Mendez, a communication studies major, said she used to attend in-person fitness classes at The WELL, and now takes them online.

“Now that I’m home, I like to take the virtual classes because it helps me know what workouts I should do and also, the fitness coaches tell us what parts we are working,” Hernandez Mendez said via Instagram direct message.

The sessions are available via Instagram Live through The WELL’s page and are usually about an hour long. 

Along with fitness sessions being offered through Instagram TV, The WELL is also posting fitness challenge posts on their Instagram. 

Haley Georgalos, a communication studies major, said the fitness challenges have helped her workout without getting bored. 

“It’s helped me add more to my workout routine so I don’t get bored of doing the same things over and over,” Georgalos said via Instagram direct message.

Ronald Lutz, director of counseling services said it’s important for The WELL to serve students virtually – through both physical and mental health. 

“I think it’s terrific,” Lutz said. “It’s been really important to us collectively, from all the different units within The WELL, to really let students know what’s available and try to keep up our services as best we can to honor students and to provide services for them.”
