Registration open for Biggest Loser Boot Camp

Visiting scholar, Huang Li, from Huaxia University in Xiamen, China teaches tai chi for the fitness center on Jan. 20, 2016, in DSC. Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will host a Biggest Loser Boot Camp from Sept. 4 to Oct. 20 for UA Little Rock students, employees, and members of the Fitness and Aquatics Center.
