Your muscles are burning.  You feel sweat run down your face.  Adrenaline rushes through your body.  Your friends joke around while they wait to use a machine.  You are at Intramural Fitness.  

Held every day after school in February, Intramural Fitness is a great after-school activity offered at Salem Jr. High.  It only goes until 4:00, so there is still plenty of time to get things done afterwards.    

It might not seem like it, but Intramural Fitness is great for socializing.  Not many people know about this, so invite your friends.  If they refuse to come, you can always literally drag them to the Fitness Room.  However you get them to come, you’ll have a better time if you have some friends there with you .  It’s also a great way to satisfy your parents if they’re always nagging you to hang out.  Something to think about.

The Fitness Room has a wide variety of exercise equipment, so it is a great opportunity to work different muscle groups.  There is always a coach there to supervise and teach some different workouts.  You can choose the right weight for you, so there is no need to worry about your muscles exploding.    

Jump on this opportunity while you still can.  Not every school offers such a great intramural activity, and unlike a regular gym membership, this is absolutely free.  With so many benefits, why wouldn’t you want to go?  Whether your mom forces you, you are invited by a friend, or you just want something to do, Intramural Fitness is an awesome way to exercise and have fun.
