Break a Sweat During Your Study Break!



Being a busy college student, it is very easy for one to become overwhelmed by schoolwork and your life revolves around upcoming tests, homework assignments, and presentations.  With that being said, it is very important for every student to step back, and take an hour or two a day for him or herself.  Working out is an excellent way for college students reduce stress, improve their memory  (which can be extremely helpful if you are cramming for an upcoming exam), help with focus (also great for long nights at memorial or college library), and overall puts you in a better mood.
