Welcome to UW Fitness

UW Fitness is comprised of experienced exercise specialists dedicated to providing quality fitness services in a relaxed and private environment.

Based in the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Applied Health Sciences, UW Fitness leverages research and teaching expertise of one of the world’s leading Kinesiology departments to offer specialized services.

Whether you are a recreational exerciser or a high performance athlete wanting a fitness appraisal or personal training, an individual being treated for cancer and want to participate in UW WELL-FIT or UW LIVING-FIT, a teen battling excess weight who wants to get active with Teens In Motion, or someone who requires supervised cardiac rehabilitation like Hardy Hearts, you will benefit from the quality services offered by our certified professionals.

For students interested in gaining valuable hands-on experience in exercise management, we offer volunteer opportunities as well as workshops and education.
