Back when you were in high school, you were running around with friends, playing sports, had easy access to a gym and had free time for extra activities - then you had this whole summer to be active and run around planning for your semester at college. Whether it's your first semester at college, or your last, moving away and going to school takes away a number of your exercise opportunities. Soon, the to-do list of exams, meetings and projects adds up and you find yourself limited to cafeteria food (not always a good fit for a healthy lifestyle) and the only running you're doing is running late (that's not cardio, friend). Mentally and physically, it is important to get ready for back to school fitness. By walking as much as possible, joining a pick-up sports league, participating in a group fitness class and trying in-home workouts, you can stay in shape and feel great even when you're away at school.
