The OSU-CHS Wellness Center has planned a number of events for the fall semester, including a fitness competition between MS1 and MS2 students, the Strongest Cowboy competition, a campus-wide fight against obesity, boot camp, yoga and more.

The Fight against Obesity weight loss competition is Sept. 1-Nov. 21. Prizes will be awarded to the participant who loses the most percentage weight and to the individual who loses the most inches in the waist. The Strongest Cowboy strength competition begins with baseline testing on Sept. 5-6 and ends Dec. 5-9. For more information about either contest, visit the wellness center or email Jesse Chaffin, health and wellness manager.

The wellness center offers boot camp and yoga classes. In addition, all OSU-CHS students, faculty and staff may attend fitness classes at the OSU-Tulsa Wellness Center free of charge. Classes include Essentrics, Zumba and yoga. Both campuses offer yoga mats and blocks, resistance bands, aerobic step equipment, rubber-coated dumbbells and more are available for use. OSU-Tulsa classes take place in the Fitness Studio in North Hall 117 while OSU-CHS classes meet in the Wellness Center and travel to their designated location as a group. To view OSU-Tulsa’s class schedule, visit the Fitness Studio website.
