With the semester soon coming to a close, Campus Recreation is encouraging members of the campus community to visit the Student Recreation Center during its Wellness Stimulus Week.

Campus Recreation is holding "Wellness Stimulus Week" through Friday to promote a healthy lifestyle and reduce stress within The University of Arizona community.

"Campus Recreation's dream is to foster healthy lifestyles for the entire University community," said Juliette Moore, who directs Campus Recreation.

The week began Monday and will run through Friday at the Student Recreation Center, 1400 E. Sixth St. This is the first of three Wellness Stimulus Weeks leading up to the grand opening of the Student Recreation Center's expansion.

The newly expanded center is scheduled to open during the spring of 2010 adding more than 50,000 gross square feet to the site.

The expansion, which will include volleyball courts, an outdoor climing area, a multi-athletic court and various other additions, is being funded with a $25 fee UA students pay each semester. It will also include facilities for weight training and cardio equipment.

During Wellness Stimulus Week, the UA community is invited to work out at the center for free between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

The Recreation Center also will offer a 10 percent discount on memberships to further promote fitness and health during the week.

Membership prices will increase Jan. 18, 2010, so this is the perfect opportunity to lock in a rate, Moore said. The rate increase has not yet been determined.

Coming up is a Stress Buster Day, slated for May 7, which includes free massages, cancer screenings, facials, acupuncture and information on ways to reduce stress. To learn more, call 621-8715.
