Each Health and Fitness Fridays event will include a light lunch and a presentation from an engaging expert on a current health topic. All events will be held at the ARC at 12pm, on the third Friday of every month from October to May. You're welcome to use the ARC Facilities before or after each event for free.

12/18 - The Skinny on Holiday Weight Gain - Jody Margolis, M.S., R.D.N., UCI Registered Dietician

The average weight gain from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day is 1-5 pounds. Harder to put away than the decorations those extra pounds tend to stick around. Learn tips on how to celebrate the season without packing on the pounds.

1/22 - New Year Detox - Jessica Van Roo, UCI Campus Recreation

The word Detox often invokes images of Hollywood stars sipping on broths and juices, but not all detoxes are the same. This is a basic detox that supercharges your bodies with nutritious, whole foods. This simple detox diet is not restrictive and doesn't take a lot of motivation to stick to, rather it takes good tasting, whole, natural foods and incorporates them into your diet. The goal is for you to learn how to feel healthier and more energized for the New Year.
