The 8th of April marked a landmark event at the CityU Student Residence: Wellness Night. After the many successful efforts the Student Residence has made to promote a healthy lifestyle—through its Healthy Food Cooking Competition, Fun Walk and above all CityU Yoga Day and classes, Bollywood Workout Workshop, and Fun Dance, Wellness Night was the metaphorical icing on the (sugar free) cake!

The evening was essentially a health gala—in the fun sense of the word, of course. Food and Fitness Booths were set up soon after the opening ceremony which boasted of dances from all of the world as well as a “Shake it Off” session which prompted the audience to stand up and do just that—shake it off! Shake off the exam stress, the long days and the forthcoming summer, with the guidance of student demonstrators up on stage.

This mini workout session certainly helped everyone work up an appetite, one which was met with the many food booths of healthy snacks from Europe, Africa and other parts of Asia too. The highlight of the night was undoubtedly the fitness competition, which saw nearly forty participants. The competition consisted of two rounds, both of which tested one’s strength and endurance in body-weight movements such as squats and push-ups. The five winners of the Night went home with fitness accessories as prizes, not to mention very sore arms and legs!

All in all, the night brought all residents together, united in health.

城大學生宿舍在四月八日舉辦了一項全新的大型康樂活動「Wellness Night」。今年由學生宿舍處發起的連串康體活動特別多,除了「食得康樂廚神大賽」、「開心健步行」、「城大瑜伽日」及瑜伽班、「寶萊塢健身工作坊」、「趣味舞蹈工作坊」外,「Wellness Night」可說是其中最美好的點綴。

當夜的精彩節目猶勝嘉年華會,節目後不僅有健康小食和健身攤位供同學嘗鮮,還有來自各國的舞蹈表演,最後當然少不了令人熱血沸騰的「Shake it Off」環節,期間所有參加者必須站立起來一同做體操,「shake」掉學業壓力,「shake」掉生活煩惱,大家開開心心,一齊「shake it off」!

短短的體操環節令大家食指大動,食慾倍增,表演節目後,同學們紛紛一擁而上,高高興興地品嘗來自包括歐洲、非洲及亞洲各國的的健康小吃。最後在活動完結前,約40名同學更踴躍地集體參與健體比賽,賽事共分為兩個回合,參加者必須利用有限的時間,鬥快做深蹲和伏地挺身,最後得勝的五位同學哪怕做得滿身酸痛,當他們收到健身器材作禮物時,臉上呈現的喜悅不言而喻。

感激這美好的Wellness Night,讓宿生們奉康健之名,團結在一起,共享歡樂一夜。
