U[FIT] Wellness Center

We are proud to have built our own state-of-the-art fitness center in 2017, encouraging employees to take control of their work-life balance and focus on health, wellness and stress management. We’re also proud to have a full-time fitness and wellness coordinator on staff. The coordinator provides one-on-one coaching, customized wellness plans and group classes for all skill levels.

“I have not felt as good, personally and professionally, as I do today. Having this wellness center was near the top of my list of pros for coming to work here at UFG. It is a great stress reliever being able to go exert yourself at whatever you like to do, whether it is running, rowing, biking, lifting, etc. It is a great way to break up the day, and the added benefit I have noticed is the increased amount of awareness and energy I have in the afternoons. This also carries over into my life outside of work. I just feel better about myself.”
