Wellness is a balance of the pieces of your life to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is not only physical health, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. There are many interrelated dimensions of wellness. Each dimension is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health.
Recreational Sports and Fitness provides wellness programs and resources for students, members and the AU community. Partnering with Human Resources, Student Health Center, Athletics, and other departments, we create opportunities to help individuals in the AU community improve their personal health and wellness.

AU RecFit will be hosting a winter walking group during the month of February! Step away from the desk every Thursday at 12:00pm and enjoy some fresh air outdoors. We will be meeting in front of Cassell Fitness Center. In case of inclement weather, we will move the walking group indoors to the Cassell treadmills. Bring a friend or co-worker!
