Carter Fitness Center is reaching to new lengths to share knowledge of health and wellness on the Amarillo College campuses by starting a free workshop called Wellness Tuesdays. The workshop is conducted on the Washington Street Campus. CFC Instructor Tricia McGuire said the initiative for Wellness Tuesdays came from Dr. Deborah Vess, vice president of academic affairs. McGuire agreed to take up the new project because she has had many years of experience in the field. “The goal would be just to educate the campus, or just anyone interested Amarillo College wide, in wellness,” McGuire said. Craig Clifton, department chairman and a CFC instructor, said the vision for Wellness Tuesdays is “to provide something for faculty, staff and students that is fitness- and wellness-related outside the walls of Carter Fitness Center.” If the people who go to the fitness center are the only ones to hear health and wellness tips, then the rest of the campus is under educated. To broaden this horizon of health and wellness, the Lunch n’ Learn workshop was created, and it is offered from noon to 1 p.m each Tuesday. After two weeks of the workshop, there already have been positive outcomes. “I went to the class over coping with stress, and I learned that the ways I typically deal with stress actually make me just as, if not more, stressed,” said Kaylee Hall, a psychology major. McGuire, the instructor of the workshop, has a bachelor’s degree in community health and a master’s in sport and exercise science. The other CFC instructors also give ideas and information for topics of discussion. “Having my co-workers give more and diverse knowledge for the topics is very helpful,” McGuire said.
