SG approves new Crossfit club

Student Government
SG allowed the creation of the TCNJ Crossfit Club, a group aimed at providing exercise activities for interested students.

Student Government approved the TCNJ Crossfit Club, an organization offering students of all skill levels a wide variety of exercises and training at its General Body meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 29.

The club utilizes the Physical Enhancement Center on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings when the center is not as busy as it is later in the day.

According to the group’s representatives, workouts are scaled in order to make them equally challenging for different skill levels.

The group also plans to participate in community work and host fundraisers. One fundraiser that the club plans to participate in is “Barbells for Boobs,” an event to raise money for breast cancer.

Some SG members thought the club was not original enough with all of the other workout clubs at the College, but a majority saw the benefits of the group.

“They’re really really intense,” said Chloe Gonzalez, sophomore political science major who has worked out with the group and instructor. “He has really great workouts … It was a really great experience.”

SG voted not to recognize TCNJ Golf Club, which would have student members golf on Sundays at a nearby course in Mercer County at a discounted price.

Some SG members appreciated the enthusiasm of the representatives, but most agreed that the club would not utilize or benefit facilities at the College and they can ultimately continue this club on their own without funding from the Student Finance Board.

Junior marketing and Spanish double major and SG vice president for advancement Christina Kopka announced that SpeakOut! TCNJ, a new online feedback forum that SG implemented on its site, has received numerous concerns that SG plans to address throughout the rest of the semester.

SG president and senior political science major Olaniyi Solebo announced sophomore communications, English and marketing major Annie Montero as senator of the month after being a member for almost two years.
