Like many students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Leslie Kravtiz exercises at the UNL Rec Center. “It’s covered by my student fees and they have a lot of options,” Kravitz said. Kravtiz has been going to the rec on and off for her four years at UNL but recently started going regularly. “I try to go (to the rec) at least three times a week for an hour.”
Aaron Voeller is another UNL student who uses the rec center. “I will workout there occasionally, but mainly for exercising I just run around my neighborhood,” Voeller said, “I run because it keeps me healthy…I’m no longer a doctor’s frown. No more high blood pressure, etc. I’m healthy and keeping that is the motivation I need to keep working out.” Running isn’t the only exercise Voeller does. In addition to practicing flips on his trampoline, during the school year he works out two to three hours a week as a member of the Air Force ROTC at UNL.
