Your Wellness Benefits
The University of Idaho Wellness Program is through Campus Recreation. The program includes:
- A full schedule of classes available to fit your needs. Over 70 classes a week from yoga, Zumba, weight training, TRX, chisel and sculpt and the option to work out on your own are just a few of the choices. Classes run all year, so it is always a great time to start.
- Personal trainers are on the floor during Open Fitness class times to answer your questions. Additionally, we offer Personal Training Services at a low cost to serve your needs.
- All trainers and instructors hold nationally accredited certifications.
- If you have questions about what classes are best for you, please stop by the office located in the SRC, call 111-111-9355 or send an email.
Free resources and counseling are available to help you with personal life matters. For more information, please see the Summary of EAP Services.
As part of health care reform, the Tobacco Cessation Support program has been expanded and now includes most generic prescriptions and support, free of cost. Simply obtain a prescription from your doctor and go to any in-network pharmacy to have it filled using your CVS Caremark card.
Check out the tobacco cessation brochure which outlines even more resources available to help you quit tobacco.
Free introductory meditation program is available from noon to 12:25 p.m. every Wednesday during the academic year in the Borah Theater, Bruce M. Pitman Center (formerly the SUB) on the Moscow Campus. No registration is necessary for these drop in sessions.
