On the Road to Fitness – A fitness park within the campus
An outdoor fitness park inside the campus open to both men and women is
a dream come true for many in the SRM Valliammai College campus. Fitness for
all is the magic mantra for a healthy environment and this is precisely the idea
behind the inauguration of this fitness park. Taking the cue from the action plan
and campaign chalked out by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and
the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) – ‘Fit India
Campaign’, the college administration have embarked on the idea of an outdoor
fitness park to endorse the significance of fitness for all.
Dr.T.P.Ganesan, Director, SRM Valliammai Engineering College,
Dr.B.Chidambararajan, Principal and Dr.M.Murugan, Vice Principal inaugurated the
Outdoor Fitness Park in the campus on 23 rd January 2020. Both the students as well
as the staff displayed their eagerness to use the outdoor gym equipments as soon as
the park was inaugurated.
Initiating the thought of a healthy life and fitness in the young minds inside the
institution could be the most effective way to bring about a radical change in the
society today. Taking into consideration, the global scenario where everybody is on
the watch out for a healthy makeover, the college administration has brought in this
ingenious project. The fitness park will be open to all students and staff. It is spread
out on a vast open area.
Fitness equipments which are easy to use have been installed to encourage streams
of visitors to this open gymnasium. The large colourful fitness equipments are all very
user- friendly and have been designed in such a way so as to improve balance,
strength, flexibility, range of motion and coordination. This open gymnasium is built
within the campus and is sure to attract many fitness freaks. This venture is to drive
home the concept of being fit and healthy to lead a happy and contented life.
