Huskies Get Creative to Stay in Shape

Northwood students are active and athletic. Three hockey teams, two soccer teams, and a ski team – not to mention loads of active and fit students who don’t participate in one of the school’s signature athletic programs – typically fill the campus fitness center this time of year

The recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, Northwood students have returned to their homes across the United States and around the world. Many students are having a difficult time staying in shape as a result of the widespread government restrictions requiring billions of people worldwide to stay in their homes. Northwood students are forced to find new ways to stay active and workout at home instead of going to their local gyms.

Students are getting creative to stay in shape. Luke French ‘20, from Kansas, said “I am doing my best to do some kind of workout each day so that I am not getting out of shape. I am also taking my dog for a walk when I can.”

Soccer player Luke Smith ‘21 is from Bolton England and said, “instead of going to the gym I’ve just been training outside because the gyms have all recently been forced to close. I like to go on runs or play football with my mates”.

Marina Alvarez ‘21 is from Long Island New York, one of the most affected areas within America. She said “It’s been a bit boring with this whole pandemic, but I’ve been finding ways to keep myself active. Our coach has been sending us at-home workouts, which I’ve found very helpful to keep in shape and moving around the house,” she added. “I am getting outside to stickhandle, shoot pucks or just go on a walk up the block”.

Hockey player Ella Fesette ‘21 said, “I’ve been keeping busy by walking my dog, shooting pucks, stick handling, and rollerblading with my brother. I have also been following Coach Gilly’s workouts designed for the team as well as doing my own [workouts].”

Despite the many disruptions, Northwood students are finding creative ways to work out and stay active during this pandemic.
