Program Menu


Exercise Classes
Working out with colleagues is a great way to stay motivated and energized. Wellness Options at Work offers 8-week classes to all UWHC, UWMF and SMPH employees.


Spring Training
Recruit coworkers and form a team for a six-week physical activity program to improve or maintain your cardiovascular fitness level. This team physical activity challenge is great for people of all fitness levels.


TRI the Challenge
How about TRI-ing a long distance triathlon this winter? Instead of a one day event, our triathlon (2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of cycling, 26.2 miles of running) can be completed in 4, 6, or 8 weeks, you decide.


Stairs for Wellness
Recruit co-workers to join you in our new Stairs for Wellness Challenge! Climb stairs to increase your level of physical activity during your work day. Raise your fitness level one step at a time.

Take 3
New wellness standards suggest that you move 3 minutes for every 60 minutes you sit. We encourage you and your co-workers to create your own fun, informal 2-3 minute movement break video. 

Walking Maps
UW Health faculty and staff have access to a number of walking routes and exercise avenues.
