Once again the hallways of SUNY Plattsburgh are filled with students. And while many are excited to get back to their studies and their social lives, others are not looking forward to the so-called Freshman 15.
"As we all know, students diets at college aren't necessarily the greatest," said Peter Ensel, a faculty adviser at PSTV, SUNY Plattsburgh's television station.
But PSTV has a recipe for fitness. It's a show that offers ideas on how to stay fit while eating right. It's called Gunz N Bunz.
"Workout, exercise, nutrition, something they could do in their room or apartment while watching. It was an intriguing idea; we've never had anything like that on PSTV," Ensel said.
"We incorporate the students working with us. It kind of feels like one community in college. So, it's not just every student on their own, it's one big community here," said Jordan Ferreira, the producer of Gunz N Bunz.
Ferreira says a new 30-minute episode will air each week, featuring student tips on dieting and different tools for working out, including exclusive workouts from the campus sports teams.
"Definitely including more workouts from actual teams, not just going to studios where they do aerobics, but adding kids you see every day, faces of the teams and putting them in your living room," Ferreira said.
The original idea for Gunz N Bunz came from a health and wellness student who has since graduated from this university. But producers say the show is a great tool for not only students to stay in shape and have fun, but also to promote healthy lifestyles for the surrounding community.
"It gives the viewer a taste and flavor of all different ways that they can improve their health," Ensel said.
A lesson outside the classroom that teaches students how to stay active and healthy while studying.
Producers expect the first segment to air the week of Sept. 15.
