Mission Statement

The Exercise Science Club is an undergraduate student-run club that looks to educate as well as advocate the health and wellness of all Sacred Heart students and the community. The EX Club allows exercise science majors as well as non-exercise science majors the opportunity to socialize and share the common belief in a health lifestyle. Meetings are held once a month so commitment is not as time consuming. The club allows members a unique chance to attend regional ACSM conferences, especially the individuals that take part in the clubs events, all which focus on one part of SHU LACES: Leadership, Academic, Community, Exercise, Service.

Recent Events

The Exercise Science Club helped to sponsor thirteen undergraduate student's attendance at the Fall 2014 New England American College of Sports Medicine Conference in Providence, Rhode Island. With the two-day registration, students also received a one-year membership to the NEACSM organization. During the conference, students were able to listen to new research and educational sessions on a variety of topics including barefoot running, training the diabetic athlete, exercise and cancer treatment, and concussion education programs.

Sacred Heart was represented in the annual NEACSM College Bowl by: Caroline Bertram, Sara Isaacson and Kyle Rogus.
