In response to the temporary cancellation of all in-person clinical exercise programs due to the evolving situation with COVID-19 at the University of Waterloo, we are excited to have launched our new remote exercise programs as of September 2020, for current UW WELL-FIT, Brain and Body and STEPS exercise program members.

As of January 2021, we are accepting new members for our remote START-FIT and UW WELL-FIT@HOME (supported by My Active Health) cancer exercise programs.

While we are currently not accepting new members into the STEPS and Brain and Body remote programs, we hope to welcome new community clients in the near future. If you’re interested in being added to our waitlist for exercise programming, please contact our fitness staff for more information.

Many of our staff and researchers are members of the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Health Department of Kinesiology. To accomplish these goals, we collaborate with numerous departments and schools across campus in addition to our national and internationals collaborations.

Please contact us to learn more about our programs and our research. As our research advances, we hope to offer exercise programming and education for our aging population and for the management of many chronic diseases.
