(36)

Take a much needed break from one’s busy schedule and visit one of George Mason University’s excellent recreation centers on campus. Conveniently located near major housing and academic buildings on-campus, students and faculty/staff can work off stress with a fun game of basketball, enjoy a cardio kickboxing class, pump some iron, or take a leisurely dip in the pool. New to the workout scene? Don’t be discouraged, our friendly staff will have you feeling confident in no time. Feeling sore after working out, have no fear, schedule an appointment with our nationally certified massage therapist. For those looking to participate in one of our recreational sports leagues, look no further than intramural sports. Intramural sports offers students and faculty/staff an opportunity to participate in sports leagues and special events such as flag football, soccer, basketball, dodgeball and much more. For those individuals new to campus, Intramural sports is a great outlet to meet new people and get away from the everyday grid of classes and homework. Intramurals has something for everyone. Checkout our upcoming events calendar and grab some friends and form a team, or register online as a “free agent". Former high school athlete? Full-time students who are looking to participate on a more competitive level, should be sure to checkout what Club Sports has to offer. Club sports offers full-time students an opportunity to compete against other local universities in sports ranging from football to synchronized swimming.There are currently 23 club teams represented here at George Mason University. Take a look at what we have to offer, and whatever you choose, have fun, and stay active.

Mission: Mason Recreation creates an atmosphere that encourages individuals to develop life-long involvement in recreational, fitness, and wellness activities through both structured and informal opportunities that meet the dynamic needs of our diverse community. We are committed to enhancing the quality of life for the Mason community by fostering leaders, encouraging healthy lifestyles, promoting learning, and developing meaningful social interactions.

I'm grateful that I'm at 198 lbs rather than 215 back in late January. Besides swimming at the GMU Aquatic Center, since January 18, 2018, I have been drinking twice a day Garden Greens Apple Cider Vinegar and Garcinia Cambogia by Windmill Vitamins. I'm seeking potential sponsorship for both my Apple Cider Vinegar Videos - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2BkPwnPfMQ&t=12s (PROMO) & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTkfB1-WuHw&t=1s (DEMO). I'm helping others just as well as myself.
