“My personal trainer was an absolute joy. She was professional and informative. As we went along, she asked me what my goals were and helped me develop a gym routine I felt comfortable with. She gave me the confidence I needed to get back to a solid fitness routine! And for that, I am grateful.”

How do I spend my Wellness Dollars? Wellness Dollars can be used for Employee Health & Wellbeing programs and services. They are not real dollars and cannot be spent on items external to the University. Throughout the year, you will be able to use them for University-wide health challenges, health screenings, nutrition programs, personal training, fitness assessments, fitness classes, lockers and more. When you visit the program registration site, you will be able to use your Wellness Dollars. The system is set up to pull from your Wellness Dollar bank first.

Each July 1, you will start fresh with 75 Wellness Dollars.
