New facility grants valuable experience for students in fitness program

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Anew lab at Arkansas State hopes to give students less of an excuse to not getin shape.

Seniors in the fitnessprograms at ASU practice training people during the spring semester. In recentyears, Professor Marla Jones said her class has doubled, which does not leaveany room for her students to train.

Jones told Region 8 Newsshe's thrilled to have this new Cardiovascular Lab to help her students get a valuableexperience.

"If I had 60 students, Iam looking to about 80 to 90 clients for them to train," said Jones. "We had noplace to put these people so I was pretty desperate, for a place and equipmentto use for all these individuals, for these students."

The lab is not availableto the public. It can be found in room 102 in the HPESS building on campus.

Students are only allowed to use the facility if they are beingtrained by the fitness students in her class. Jones' said this differsfrom the Red Wolves Center, because the Cardiovascular Lab is a classroom.
