Luqi Zhang has been a member with Aztec Recreation since 2013. She came to San Diego State as an international student, and is studying Business Accounting. Luqi initially joined Aztec Recreation because it was the cool thing to do. “In China, I never worked out. But when I came here, everyone had a gym membership. So I decided to follow the group and get one too.” And Luqi has been hooked ever since! Her favorite facilities are the rock climbing wall and the Aquaplex, and she loves the cardio and yoga classes that the Group Fitness program offers.
“Luqi is very involved in Aztec Recreation and I have known her for about two years now,” says Aimee Orozco, Member Services Supervisor, “She is always in the front of the Group Fitness classes with a smile on her face. She is one of the most enthusiastic people I have met with a great attitude and outlook on life.” Luqi’s personal motto is, “When nothing goes right, go left.” This embodies her happy and positive outlook on life.
Outside of Aztec Recreation, Luqi focuses on living well by eating healthy. She tries to get vegetables in daily, and avoids eating out at restaurants too often. When asked if she was an Aztec for life, she nodded and said, “Definitely.” She explained how great the international student program is with integrating the students with the SDSU student life and programs. Congratulations, Luqi!
