ADA - Break out the wrist straps, chalk and Virbram's because ONU's PolarFit club is hosting a day of activities to push athlete's to their limits.The King Horn Classic on Sunday, April 7, will feature three workouts in which members from PolarFit, and surrounding communities, will tackle feats of strength and endurance. Athletes will be pushed to their limits as they compete in strength, special skills and muscular endurance tests. At 4:30 p.m. an award's ceremony will be held in which top participants will be crowned "King" and "Queen" of the classic, an honor they will hopefully come back to claim next year as well. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m.
PolarFit is a new student group on Ohio Northern's campus that strives to teach the ONU student body about health and fitness. Last semester it started out with 20 members and has quickly grown to exceed 50 members at this time. Members take the time to exercise daily together, with exercise physiology and athletic training majors leading workouts. These workouts often offer a wide range of functional bodyweight training, including Olympic lifting, cardiovascular work and gymnastic-style exercises.
