Kinesiology department offers LIFE Program and K-State CrossFit

Submitted by Travis Haug

Are you looking for a convenient exercise program to help supplement your weight management goals? The kinesiology department offers the LIFE program and K-State CrossFit, which are open to students, staff, faculty and community members.

Exercise is a vital component of energy balance — i.e., energy expenditure — and important for maintaining and improving body composition and health. No need to get in shape before you join our program, we have opportunities and scaled workouts for every fitness and ability level; our members span ages 10 to 85. 

The LIFE program and K-State CrossFit are conveniently located in the Natatorium/Ahearn Field House with shower facilities and lockers available.

The LIFE facilities include basketball courts, indoor and outdoor track, and weight room with free weights, machines, bicycles and rowers; open 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 4:30-7 p.m. during the work week. Join a coach-led structured, constantly varying exercise class with K-State CrossFit at 5:45 a.m., noon, or 5:30 p.m. during the work week; at 9 a.m. or a free introductory class at 10 a.m. on Saturdays.

High-intensity CrossFit exercise training can be very effective for post-exercise energy consumption — i.e., burning fat — and K-State research studies have shown both significant improvements in body composition and weight maintenance.
