Wellness holds instructor tryouts for fall

The BYU-Idaho Wellness Center is holding tryouts for prospective instructors and trainers through Wednesday.

Tryout times, which take place on weekdays from 5-9 p.m. are posted on the door of the John W. Hart Building 234.

Students interested can sign up for a posted time and pick up an application, which they must fill out and bring to their tryout.

They must also be prepared to teach a 25-minute class of their choice as a part of their tryout, according the BYU-I website.

“Wellness Activities is a student-led organization within Student Activities with the purpose of helping students reach their health, fitness and wellness goals,” according to the Wellness web page on the BYU-I website.

The Wellness Center offers a variety of classes and hosts different events throughout the semester.

One activity offered that starts this week is called Fit for Life.

Fit for Life is a fitness program designed for any student, the student’s spouse or faculty member regardless of age or fitness level, according the the Wellness Web page.

Other classes and events put on by the Wellness Center this Fall Semester include Biggest Winner, 9 Week Challenge, Wellness Workshops, Try a Tri, Olympic Lifting Competition, Lazy Man Iron Man, BYU-I Fitness games, Power Lifting and Zumbathon.
