The Tougaloo College fitness center provides an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to improve individual health and well-being.  Physical activity fosters normal growth and development and can reduce the risk of various chronic diseases and make people feel, function, and sleep better. You can gain most of these health benefits when you do the equivalent of 150 to 300 minutes or 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity each week.  The center is readily available to assist you in obtaining the daily recommended physical activity.
