Yup . . . . the freshman 15 happens! This is great info! Passing it onto my DD. Report
Awesome tips!! Report
Sure wish I had these tips when I was in college. Not a total loss, I will pass them on to my grandchildren. Report
These ideas work very well in any small space. Thanks! Report
My daughter is a freshman in college. She lives on campus and her full time enrollment includes a membership to the gym on campus. She takes full advantage of the treadmill and eliptical machines to burn off stress and get some exercise. She also walks everywhere on campus. When she comes home on weekends she likes to run. I didn't worry about her gaining the Freshman 15 because she was active before she went to college. If anything, I think she's slimmed down a little. :) Report
When I attended the Arkansas Tech University anyone could sign up for their gym for a fee of $10 per semester. This was a state of the art gym and Olympic size pool. I imagine many other universities offer similar options. Also everyone mostly walked across campus (a very large campus) since parking options was greatly restricted. Report
I am living in a small apartment, these are great, except that the downstairs neighbor is a noise fascist! I cannot walk let alone try any activity without a knock at the door and a disturbing discussion about quiet hours. Are there any cardio activities that are quiet or am I doomed to have to go outside for this? Report
Great article Report
Jumping rope is the choose at my dorm currently. It's not HUGE but it's big enough to where I can jump rope with a decent amount of space. The issue I have is eating. It's not that I even eat to much, it's that I have to eat SO early that I end up hungry at strange hours in the night.
Add that to the fact that i'm working out as well and i'm worried that I won't lose any weight. I don't snack very often, and I limited myself to the desert bar. Maybe i'll have 2 or three oatmeal cookies. Sometimes I pig out eating lactose free soft served ice cream and cake. Report
Great article. My college years was the bomb. I didn't start putting on weight until I got married and had children. Report
I actually took gym classes in college (something I swore I'd never do when I left high school). I did fencing and self defense. We had a great gym and it was pretty far from my dorm so it was good exercise just getting there.
