“I enjoy the classes because I get a full body workout each class, I get to spend time with my colleagues outside of the office, and I have also made new friends!”

Vicki began participating participating in UBC Recreation programs after seeing other colleagues exercising during lunchtime. The fitness class times and locations are very convenient for her, and she finds a lunchtime workout is a great way to feel re-energized during a workday. Vicki’s involvement helps her feel connected to the UBC Community.
