Let Us Help You Make Fitness Part of Your Life in Motion

Rec Sports' Fitness Services offers a variety of ways for you to be well for life!

Physical activity has been proven to impact your mental health by improving sleep, reducing stress and anxiety and creating a sense of belonging. Participating in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity over longer durations (weeks or months) reduces symptoms of anxiety in adults. (Physical Activities Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition published by The Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion; 2018)

In compliance with federal, state, local and university guidelines regarding COVID-19, some in-person programming and services will not be available this semester.
