uc davis active aggies mobile fitness class

Providing classes in various districts around the UC Davis campus, making it more convenient for folks to access, get a workout in and not have to go very far from their place of employment. 

This program expands on a pilot program that occurred last year to create opportunities for students, staff and faculty to have easy access to a fitness class.  Program data shows that location is the best indicator on whether staff and faulty join in a fitness offering.  Kaiser data from 2014 showed that 64% of our UC Davis employees are not meeting the minimum requirements for physical activity and 36% are completely sedentary.  This program aims to provide a physical activity intervention on our campus that takes into account barriers that have been expressed by the campus community-cost of ARC/gym facilities, accessibility of gym, time allowed for lunch breaks, family priorities before and after work, etc.  Folks who participated in the pilot program reported positive outcomes.
