NEW:  Virtual Fitness Classes

Even though most of us are spending the majority of our time at home, it is still important to be physically active. The need to do at home workouts is higher now with gyms and fitness centers closed due to COVID-19. Working out can be a great way to increase your strength and fitness level. It is also an excellent way to de-stress and boost your immune system.

AgriLife Employee Wellness is offering virtual fitness classes with professional fitness trainers to help jump start your at home fitness routine and to make sure you do not miss out on any fitness goals.
