Join us for the annual faculty and staff Wellness Fair on Thursday October 26, 2023 at UREC!

The Wellness Fair is an annual event open to all faculty and staff. This event includes a variety of opportunities for our faculty and staff to enhance their wellness, to include a Community Connections Vendor Fair, Group Fitness Classes, Health Screenings and more. 


Community Connections Vendor Fair  (10:30 am - 1:30 pm) - MAC III
Take some time to meet with campus partners as well as community businesses and organizations offering products and services that can aid you on your wellness journey. Please see below for a list of registered vendors for this year. Be sure to stop by the HR table to get your free COVID self-test.


UREC Adventure Center  (10:00 am - 11:00 am)
UREC will open the Adventure Center an hour early, at 10:00 am, so that faculty and staff can have an exclusive opportunity to explore all that the Adventure Center has to offer. The center will remain open all day; however, we wanted to give an hour for faculty and staff to explore the center before it opens to the rest of campus.
Climb the 360 free-standing climbing wall or check out all of the awesome outdoor equipment you can rent from UREC to prepare you for your next outdoor adventure!


Group Fitness Classes  (see below for classes offered and registration information)
We will offer two group fitness classes during the Wellness Fair. These classes will only be open to faculty and staff! Registration for these classes will be required.

BARRE (12:00 - 1:00pm)
Mind Body Studio II
Ditch your sneakers for this ballet-inspired class! This class builds cardiorespiratory endurance, strength and flexibility in a low-impact manner by combining ballet-inspired movements with elements of pilates, yoga and strength training. Perfect for all fitness levels. No ballet experience is needed!
KICKBOXING (3:00 - 4:00pm)
Group Exercise Studio I
We'll bring out the heavy bags and gloves to learn some basic strikes and kicks. Kickboxing is a great way to add some cardio to your day and relieve built up stress!

Biometric Screenings  (10:00 am - 1:00 pm) - Sports Forum II
The JMU School of Nursing will be available to offer biometric screenings for faculty and staff; no appointment necessary.

They will also offer the following ancillary vaccines: Tdap, Shingrex (shingles), Prevnar (pneumonia, Pneumovac (pneumonia), Hep A-Havrix, Hep A - Vaqta, and Hep B - Heplisav.
