– ActiveU (all group fitness classes are free to employees over the summer – no membership required)

– Open lap swim (employees may swim free on Wednesday mornings 6-8:30 a.m. and Fridays 12-1:30 p.m.

– Fitness Lending Library – HealthyUNCG has more than 70 items that allow employees to be active at their desk, including many new items such as a desk elliptical (see FB link for video).

– Group Walks – every Tuesday at noon (“like” the FB page or check the website for updates. These walks are occasionally morning walks – or they are cancelled – if it will be very hot or if it is raining). Walkers meet in front of the EUC.

– UNCG also offers group or departmental classes such as chair yoga or resistance bands.

-Wellness coaching (UNCG employees get up to six sessions for free). A wellness coach can help with structure, accountability and support. Register online.

-Lime Bike – UNCG’s brand-new dockless bike-share program is simple to use and rides are discounted for employees. Click here to learn more.
