UFM recreational one-credit hour classes still available

Submitted by Erin Bishop

UFM Community Learning Center, in partnership with K-State Global Campus, has some unique, motivating and skill-building courses still open for enrollment this semester. These courses are one-credit hour classes, hosted in a nontraditional format.

• 5K-Half Marathon Training starts Sept. 8 and ends Nov. 10. It runs Monday and Wednesday nights from 5-6:15 p.m. This course will focus on training for a race ranging from 5k to a half-marathon and is designed for runners of all levels. Students will run and train in groups to accomplish their running goal. The reference number for this course is #17478.

• Women’s Self-Defense has three different sections with enrollment still available. This course runs on a Saturday/Sunday format and will fit in with your semester schedule quite well. Classes start on Sept. 6, Oct. 11 and Nov. 2. This course takes a holistic approach to self-defense, emphasizing both physical and psychological strategies. This class is designed to improve your awareness, personal safety and self-confidence. No prior martial arts experiences are required. Wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes. The references numbers are #16891, #16889, and #16944.

• Intermediate Bowling has already started, but the instructor has room for a few more students. The course is Monday afternoons at the K-State Student Union bowling center. This intermediate bowling course includes lessons on the three factors of rolling the ball: ball weights and how they affect the path down the lane; how different ball surfaces affect ball reaction; and differences in ball cover stocks, counter weights and balance holes. Students will learn how to play different lane conditions and how it affects your ability to score, and how to make lane adjustments. The reference number for this course is #16731.

UFM Community Learning Center and K-State Global Campus have many other opportunities for recreational credit courses throughout the semester. During the second eight weeks, courses include yoga, Zumba dance, boot camp fitness, total body toning, yogilates, indoor cycling, fitness swimming, boxing, and first aid and CPR.  All are currently open for enrollment.
