Fitness for Fun Enrollment!

This community-based wellness program is designed to assist individuals in developing healthier lifestyles through education and a structured exercise routine. Although the program is designed for the adult exerciser, student trainers are well-prepared for participants of different ages (under 17 years old) and backgrounds. Participants receive cardiovascular and muscular fitness assessments, body composition testing, cholesterol screening, personalized exercise prescription, access to all UREC facilities with a semester of one-on-one personal training (~10 weeks, three hours/week) with a senior undergraduate intern. If you are still uneasy of using public fitness centers, the student trainers are prepared to design an exercise program that can be completed in your own home with little to no equipment! 

We are now enrolling for the Fall session to run from the end of August through the beginning of December! If interested, please visit the link below to enroll, or you can e-mail for more information. Spots are limited so sign-up today!
