Red Bull rider prepares for Crashed Ice

Focused on the upcoming Crashed Ice event in St. Paul this January, Cameron Naasz, international Red Bull rider, is getting ready for another world tour with Red Bull’s Team USA. With his sights set, Naasz began training intensively for the event, Jan. 17, just over a month ago. He said that he keeps in shape year round, staying fit for Crashed Ice, but now he’s “religious” about getting to the gym every day. “I say it every year. I’d love to win the event in St. Paul. It’s definitely what I’m shooting for; not second, not third, but first place,” Naasz said. “I’ve come in third place two years in a row now.” Working with a personal trainer in Minneapolis, he said that he’s been doing a lot of legwork, and “fast-twitch muscle work” to help build his endurance and to get in shape for the event. “I’m really just… Keep Reading

Yoga in the park

Group fitness instructors led over 30 participants through various sun salutations to celebrate National Yoga Month on Sunday. Campus Recreation sponsored ‘Yoga in the Park’ in honor of National Yoga Month. ‘Yoga in the Park’ was a free event and open to the public. The event started at noon with music, deep breathes and warm-up sun salutations. At noon, Nora Gyarfas, a group fitness instructor on campus, led the group through simple poses and stretches to ease into the session. Gyarfas set the pace for the group but encouraged individuals to go at their own speed. Gyarfas said that yoga is meant for anybody who wants to try it, since it can be tailored to the individual. “People from 6 to 60 year-olds can do it,” she said. The various muscle movements and muscle repetitions are good exercise, she said. During the session, Gyarfas said to the group that yoga… Keep Reading

Yoga seeks to strengthen both body and mind

What once was practiced more than 5,000 years ago as part of a quest for improved health and being in-tune with oneself has now spread across the world as a way to improve both mental and physical states of being. “The thing about yoga is that it improves endurance, flexibility, balance and postures,” SCSU Fitness Coordinator Chris Haukos said. “When you do yoga you focus on breathing. It helps improve imbalances in your body as well.” Offered during the fall semester Monday through Friday at 8 a.m. and then again in the evenings Monday through Thursday at 7 p.m. Haukos said yoga is something that has tremendous benefits for participants. “In our industrial world, some of our muscles get strong and then they get over tight,” Haukos said. Attributing this to the basics of most students’ daily lives of sitting at a computer or engaging in other physical activities such… Keep Reading

Reduce, Reuse and Husky Re-cycle

Originally started by a local eagle scout to help benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Central Minnesota, SCSU’s Outdoor Endeavors has taken the concept of reduce, reuse, and Re-cycle to a whole other level. Taken over the by university around 2005, the concept of a bike sharing program on the SCSU campus was modeled after the bike sharing programs in European countries, particularly in Scandinavia. Using old bikes donated from the community, Outdoor Endeavors soon embarked on a project that would help students get around campus. And while the program was started with good intentions, Coordinator for Experiential Programs for Outdoor Endeavors Ivan Bartha said multiple problems plagued the new bike sharing project called the Yellow Bike Program. “We would start with about 25 to 30 bikes during the fall and the spring semesters,” Bartha said. “Each bike would be painted yellow. And they would be located near the… Keep Reading
