The Brothers of Alpha Kappa Psi, Professional Business Fraternity, Psi Tau chapter, are hosting “The Olympian,” a Pilates exercise class, today as a part of the “Exposed” week, which showcases the new brothers of the Zeta pledge class to Howard University’s campus.
The event will start at 7 p.m. today on the front lawn of the Louis Stokes Heath and Science Library. Pilates is a form of exercise that emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility and awareness.
Corrie McCrae, Pilates instructor and the creator of The Bad Girl’s Workout, told the Huffington Post that, “Pilates has become so popular over [the] past decade because it simply works better than most fitness regimes at creating functional strength and flexibility.”
“Tonight’s event is going to be fun,” said Khalil Boggs, a member of the Zeta class. “It is a great way to relieve any stress that you’ve been carrying throughout the week.” Devone Martin, a local Pilates instructor, will teach the fitness session.
Alan Stewart, a senior and brother of Alpha Kappa Psi, is “excited for the new brothers. Your week is one of the best aspects of being a new brother. Your face is all over campus, and you have the support of the campus and the brotherhood as we display you to campus. I can’t wait for Zeta’s workout plan tonight.”
Since its debut, the Psi Tau Chapter has hosted a variety of events for the campus and surrounding community. “I thought everyone was really friendly, it was fun and I had a great time,” said Jeremy Clayton, sophomore public relations major from West Palm Beach, Fla., in reference to a previous event hosted by the brotherhood.
“Kachi Ezeibe, sophomore chemistry major from Huntsville, Ala., looks forward to tonight’s event. “Since it’s spring time, you have to make sure you’re ready for beach week.”
The “Exposed” week will close with two events on Friday: “The Socialite,” a picnic in front of the School of Business, at noon and “The Philanthropist,” a Relay for Life, in Burr Gymnasium at 7 p.m.
