B.A. Kinesiology (2019)
"I needed to start taking the lead on my fitness regimen.” Asha Marchant was motivated to come to the rec as a way to prepare for her future and continue to uphold an active lifestyle. Her first encounter with our facility was intimidating because she had never formally worked out in a gym. Soon enough, her perception was swayed by her friends. She started attending group fitness classes and found Zumba to be her favorite along with Pilates and Yoga. She feels fitness classes are a great way to have fun while getting a workout in at the same time. Asha is a kinesiology major and wants to become a physical therapist in the future. Physical therapy requires you to have a strong body capable of moving and supporting patients and the rec helps her prepare for that. Asha has a strong passion for mixed martial arts and has practiced since she was in the fourth grade. Asha and her family are each trained first degree black belts.
