Editor’s note: This is the latest installment of the “Student Affairs Talk” podcast for 2019-20. Communications Director for Student Affairs Philip Sikes visits with various leaders from the staff and student communities. Our next guest in the summer 2020 series is Campus Recreation’s Brooke Beidler, assistant director for integrated fitness.

In just two years, Brooke Beidler has assumed a great deal of responsibility within Campus Recreation. She supervises fitness assistants — students who re-rack weights and enforce policies in Swann Fitness Center, for example — and personal trainers. She’s intimately involved in the F45 program from a recruiting, hiring and training standpoint.

But Beidler’s true passion lies in “getting people to move better,” which no doubt stems from her academic background as a two-time graduate of Clemson’s recreational therapy program. She has worked with adaptive sports and in preparing fitness assessments for students in the ClemsonLIFE program.

In the podcast, she discusses her experience as a Clemson student-turned-staffer, Campus Rec’s shared space with a physical therapy office and how the team has transitioned into virtual operations during COVID-19.
