UW WELL-FIT graduate program

"Two years after finishing radiation therapy I still look forward to these classes at the 'graduate' level. I have never felt more fit. I even participated in the Run for the Cure!...The support I have received physically and emotionally through this class has been second to none. I am so happy that I dragged myself to that first class, wondering what good this exercise would do me!"

The UW WELL-FIT graduate program is an extension of the 12 week program for individuals in cancer treatment, however participants in this program may or may not be undergoing treatment.

The 'graduate program' evolved after many of the participants had completed the original program and wanted to continue with exercise in the same type of supportive environment that is offered by UW Fitness.

The grad program is currently fee-for-service and available for those wanting to continue to exercise after completing the original 12 week program.

It is our hope that additional support for UW WELL-FIT could be obtained to make the program more affordable to others coping with cancer.
