Student’s Mural Guides Cyclists Along Road to Better Health

John M. Arrigonie, lab supervisor for exercise science, and artist Lindsey Martin pause in front of the in-progress mural, which was completed between Finals Week and Winter Break.

With her own sketch to guide her, Martin adds wisps of color to a previously blank wall.

The finished mural provides a virtual destination for cycling students.

Graphic design student Lindsey Martin helped the exercise science department to transform a room formerly used to teach CPR courses. The classroom – Room 107 in Bardo Gymnasium – is now equipped for a hybrid Group Cycling and TRX Training class, taught by John M. Arrigonie, lab supervisor for exercise science. Martin has also completed murals for Schneider Electric and Whoodles, a dog grooming and training facility. In the Bardo Gym classroom, Martin’s mural is faced by cyclists on stationary bikes, so she was directed to design a scene that included a path. “I wanted it to be very vibrant,” she said, so her tree-lined path leads to a bright sunset over purple mountains.
