So said Zhang Jian­bin, di­rec­tor of the Venue Cen­ter at Tian­jin Univer­sity. Tian­jin Univer­sity opened an op­tional course – weight loss train­ing camp. Ac­cord­ing to Zhang, the course will last for 21 days and con­tains aer­o­bics and anaer­o­bic ex­er­cises, as well as healthy diet and psy­cho­log­i­cal guid­ance. Af­ter the course, stu­dents who achieved their stan­dard BMI (Body Mass In­dex) can get two course cred­its. A to­tal of 20 stu­dents joined the camp. A grad­u­ate sur­named Guo said ex­er­cis­ing to­gether is more in­ter­est­ing than ex­er­cis­ing alone, and he has be­come more ac­tive and lost weight. (Source: Bei­jing Youth Daily)
