On November 19th, the 2015 autumn fitness activities of our university were organized at the scenic Baiyun Mountain and the central lake of University Town. All teachers and staff of our university met together to do some physical exercise and enjoy nature.
The 2015 Autumn Fitness Activities
“ It is rare to have such an opportunity to do physical exercise outdoors. The annual autumn fitness activities are really beneficial to our health”, said Mr Wang. With these words, he continued to pick the shuttlecock up and kick it. His hearty laughter, accompanied the colorful shuttlecock spread to far-away places. Liao Jing, a member of staff who works in the library, attracted much more attention with her fancy kicking. She said: “Although normally I am busy working, I’ll take the time to do exercise at night.”
Kicking a shuttlecock
Zou Min, a teacher from the School of Journalism and Communication, kicked the shuttlecock 90 times in one minute and finally won the first prize in the competition. After the conclusion, teachers and staff still ardently discussed the competition. Some of them thought the strong wind greatly influenced their performance. Others, however, considered their poor performance was related to their inner nervousness, as many people were watching them kicking.
Throwing the Frisbee
Everybody joined these activities, both men and women. Some were kicking the shuttlecock, while others were throwing the Frisbee and spinning the hula hoop. Everyone was deeply motivated by colorful activities and heartily aspersed their sweat and passions.
A lottery draw
At the end, the Trade Union especially prepared bottled mineral water for all participants and organized a lottery draw. Spending the whole afternoon participating in outdoor activities, all teachers and staff not only did physical exercise, but also relaxed themselves and enjoyed nature.
The autumn fitness activities finally achieved full success.
