It's around this time of the month that New Year's resolutions made on the 1st are starting to slip a bit. That's okay! Change takes time, and a few slip ups shouldn't be seen as the end of trying. If one of your New Year's resolutions was to get healthier, you're in luck! This week, let's take a look at places near Urbana that can actually help you stick to your resolutions while having a good time. These places can benefit mental health as well as psychical healthy! Win-win, if you ask me.
Location: 1502 N Cunningham Ave
What you can do there: Urbana Boulders offers a full body workout that makes you aware of muscles you never knew you had! Similar to rock climbing in most ways, bouldering involves climbing without a rope. Some people are a bit worried by this, but the walls only go up 13 feet and the floors are covered in thick foam cushioning. Since there aren't any ropes to deal with, you are free to explore the space and climb however you want. Learn more about UB here!

What you can do there: This is where women go to learn how to box! Boxing is a great full-body workout and is super empowering. CU Women's Boxing is a no-contact gym, so you won't be fighting anyone but the punching bag. Classes are an hour long, but it certainly won't feel like it, as they are so much fun.
