Are a flat stomach or defined abdominal muscles important to you? I’m personally removed from the particular reasons people have for altering their bodily form, but working towards individual health goals is rarely a bad thing. DRAW is holding a HardCORE class from 5-5:30 p.m. at the SRC today. If you’ve been saying for weeks you want to get in shape, why not start at your core? We all pay for gym membership with our tuition anyways. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

On Monday, and in fact on every Monday, DRAW hosts a spin class in the morning from 6 – 7a.m. (gross) and in the evening from 5:30 – 6:30p.m. (when normal people are awake). From what I understand, spin classes involves lots of indoor cycling and sweating like mad, and is a really good cardio workout. Pedal like you’re trying to bike away from a moose! Which is a real scenario that happened to me when I was 12 so you can never be too unprepared to flee from large animals. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor
