Mia Ralph, class of 2026, works out during her free time in the Crain Center.

“You do not have to be extreme, just consistent.” – Unknown Author Being consistent provides a sense of routine to a workout. If a student is able to stick to a routine while working out, they are more likely to put in the effort to better themselves. Exercise is very important and the Crain Center gives every student a chance to better themselves in their own individual ways. Coach Jones believes that, “Exercise helps to develop the mind, body, and spirit. It is a form of relaxation which calms and prepares the body for everyday tasks.”

The Crain Center was created to benefit all athletes. Students who play sports at Hutchison, find that training outside of practice helps them become better as individuals and teammates. Those who play non-Hutchison sports also benefit from utilizing the Crain Center. Oftentimes athletes need to work out during school hours because they do not have the time after school due to their extra curricular activities. Athletes can use pre planned workouts that are specific to their sport and influenced by their coaches. Having a workout already planned, guarantees a less stressful environment, but also ensures that the athlete is reaching all necessary goals. 

Mia Ralph (10) is a very talented athlete who enjoys working out in the Crain Center. Mia is a competitive dancer at Studio B in Memphis. She has been dancing for thirteen years and spends the majority of her free time in the studio. Although she spends around fourteen hours a week at Studio B, she makes room in her busy schedule to train in the Crain Center two to three times a week. When asked about utilizing the Crain Center, Mia said, “It really helps my performance because when I am at the studio, I am running dances and building technique, but working on my strength outside of the studio makes me a stronger individual and dancer.” 

Even students who do not play a sport outside of school use the Crain Center to benefit their mental health. Hadley Mccandless (9) says, “Working out in the Crain Center makes me feel motivated and more productive throughout the day. The ability to workout with my friends pushes me to work harder.” Hadley enjoys working out to better herself academically, physically, and mentally. 

The Crain Center provides an encouraging environment for everyone to use. Whether the student is a Hutchison athlete or is participating in extracurriculars outside of school, the Crain Center is beneficial to each and every girl.
