UBC is dedicated to fostering a healthy workplace and providing staff and faculty with opportunities to pursue options that build health and wellbeing. Regular physical activity and overall fitness is part of a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle, but it can be challenging to fit this into our busy schedules. UBC Recreation has a variety of programs designed around you. With classes offered throughout the day and across campus, we can help fit activity into your day.
