Wellness

UTHSC Campus Recreation offers many opportunities to carry out a wellness oriented lifestyle. We greatly encourage you to live your life to its healthiest while taking part in these enjoyable activities! Come take part in the Wellness Programs offered to you at the Fitness Center.

Inactivity Reminder

Recent clinical trials show us that health benefits can be gained by simply reducing long periods of inactivity.  Need a reminder to be more active throughout the day?  The following apps can be put on your iphone or android and has an alarm reminder for you to get up and move.  This is especially useful if you spend a lot of time at your desk or just being still.  We recommend you set the alarm to remind you at least once an hour to get up and move for a minute or two.

Healthy Living Program

The UTHSC Campus Recreation Healthy Living Program is for anyone who has struggled with making healthy nutritional and fitness choices and is ready to make a change in their life.

If you have a BMI of at least 30, want to begin to make some healthy changes in your daily lifestyle, nutrition, fitness, and your medical health this is the program for you.

We will meet once a week for twelve weeks beginning in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.  There will be an educational session on nutrition and fitness topics and a 30-45 minute exercise session each week. Please be sure and wear clothes you can move in. We will learn how to set reasonable goals for healthy lifestyle choices, talk about our successes and failures, and exercise weekly.

Contact Suzanne Fenech at sfenech@uthsc.edu for registration information.

Walking with UTHSC

The walking groups meet in the Spring and Fall when the weather is agreeable for walking. A staff member from the Fitness Center will meet participants at three different sites: Health Sciences Park Pavilion; 910 Madison Bldg Lobby; and the 66 Pauline Bldg. These are walk at your own pace groups and we walk for about 30 minutes. 

Contact Suzanne Fenech at sfenech@uthsc.edu to sign up for a group.
