Longhorn Fitness: Then v. Now

Need some fitness inspiration? We compiled a series of snapshots taking a look back at Longhorns to working up a sweat through the years.

From aerobics in the ’80s to spin classes and wearable fitness trackers today, exercise has taken many forms and appearances through the years.

That’s especially true at UT, where there are many ways to stay in shape, from intramural sports to wilderness adventure trips. The university has some of the best college fitness offerings — and more than 90 percent of students participate in UT RecSports… How’s that for fitspo?

Move the slider on the series of snapshots below to take a look back at the ways Longhorns have worked up a sweat during the past century. 

Our facilities have upgraded… 

We’ve picked up some new gear… 

We’ve even changed how we wear our hair… 

But, overall, things haven’t changed that much…

Longhorns have always been game for anything! 

And there are lots of new ways to get moving at UT today, from the rock climbing wall and aquatics complex at Gregory Gym to new club sports like quidditch and wakeboarding to spin classes and the Longhorn Run

You can find out about these and other ways to be active on campus at www.utrecsports.org

Here’s to a strong and healthy 2018!
