We are excited to announce that MOVE is on the move! Miami & Oxford Value Exercise Bootcamps, also known as, MOVE Bootcamp is a collaborative initiative between Miami Rec Sports Fitness Department and the President’s Office. We began MOVE Bootcamp back in Spring of 2017. Once a month small groups of community members and students would meet to sweat it out in President and Dr. Crawford’s backyard. The initiative, which originally started out as a campaign to improve Miami and the Oxford community’s overall health, has turned into way to bring students and members of the community together. MOVE Bootcamps are all encompassing and open to all ages, respectively including ages 8 to 70 participate in previous MOVE Bootcamps.
This year, Miami Rec Sports Fitness Department and the President’s Office decided to collaborate with other on and off campus partners. On November 11, 2017 we will hold our largest MOVE Bootcamp yet! We have collaborated with Miami University Air Force and Army ROTC’s who will create the workout program! Athletics has also been an active participant, donating space in the Dauch Indoor Sports Center, and providing additional marketing. The most exciting part of this MOVE Bootcamp is the added fundraising component. MOVE Bootcamp is showing support for Toys for Tots, a Marine organized program.
No registration is required for MOVE Bootcamp, just show up with a smile and willingness to work hard! Spring 2018 MOVE Bootcamp dates have yet to be determined.
Bring a toy or two and join us at 10:30 am on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at the Dauch Indoor Sports Center located at 800 Weeb Ewbank Way, Oxford, OH 45056.
If you have questions or are interested in collaborating in future MOVE Bootcamps please contact Assistant Director of Fitness, Shannon Speed, at speeds@MiamiOH.edu or (513) 529-2193.
