Use Your Free Gym Pass

One of the best perks in college (as there are many) is the free gym membership. At Columbia, the gym is open to the public, and they offer classes for a fee. Unfortunately, even the students have to pay for classes. However, the gym itself and all its amenities go with the membership, which includes the weights, pool, stretching mats, track, basketball court, cardio machines, all of the major works. You can easily set up your own workout that way. Moreover, you can finally do all the great workouts you find on the internet without fear!

Take, for example, this great workout plan from Muscle and Strength. It’s in their celebrity section, and by celebrity, they mean popular movie characters. This one in particular has decently high ratings given the number of votes, but with a caption like “build a leaner, more muscular physique”, it’s easy to see why. So, why don’t we go ahead and get Shredded Like Wolverine!

It’s a six week workout plan to build muscle. Hint: building muscle means you burn more calories overall during the day. They even offer a meal plan, which isn’t hard to do in the dining halls. Who’s up for this new challenge? Better start now before the holiday season comes around and the meals get larger!
