Making positive decisions to improve learning while also experiencing the health and wellbeing benefits of exercise are two journeys we hope you embark on. It’s never too early or too late to start making good lifestyle decisions that lead to habits that stay throughout our lives.
Research shows that individuals who participate in physical activities on a regular basis learn new skills and improve performance, while gaining the self-discipline to excel in individual and group activities.
Physical fitness promotes mental alertness and the ability to concentrate. Additionally, physical fitness helps to manage stress and express emotions in healthy way, and encourages positive relations with family and peers.
The mission of San Mateo County Community College District (SMCCCD) Community Fitness and Athletic Centers is to create a healthy environment that engages students, staff and community members in the pursuit of health and physical fitness. The Community Fitness emphasis is on enjoying exercise for its own sake and learning fitness habits for life. This also means that students have a place where they can integrate with the Community Members, relax in their efforts, make friends and develop individual improved lifestyle achievements side-by-side with the Community Membership who seek similar efforts to improve their health and well-being.
