TRAC traffic speeds up
An acceleration in traffic at the new Recreation and Fitness Center (TRAC) means more calories are being burned at UIS this fall. Or so it would seem. Director of Recreational Sports JT Timmons reports that there has been a steady increase in card swipes at the center this semester. He said faculty and staff tend to use TRAC from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; students, faculty and staff from 3:15 to 6:15 p.m.; and students from 8:15 p.m. to 10:45 p.m. Intramural participation has increased in nearly every sport with volleyball posting more than a 55% increase in participation over last year. Reservations can be made for the racquetball courts and the three arena courts by going to the Recsports website. Everyone at UIS, employees and students alike, are encouraged to take advantage of the health, fitness and wellness opportunities that TRAC provides.
