With the start of the new year, many people are looking to boost their physical activity. Exercise helps with mental health, especially during these winter months, and provides bonding opportunities for the whole family. This seems like the perfect time to highlight the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center! The CRWC is located at the corner of Burlington and Madison Streets; it boasts many facilities such as two swimming pools, a rock climbing wall, a jogging track, and a variety of gym equipment spanning over three floors. There are also services like group fitness classes (with some virtual options!), personal training, and wellness services.  

Memberships to the CRWC (and the other campus fitness facilities) are $39/month per person for staff and their partners, and children of staff ages 4-18 can join for $13/month. There is also an incentive program that allows employees to only pay half price for their membership if they use it at least four times per month. In addition to the facilities at the CRWC, Recreational Services offers a variety of services such as equipment rental, adventure trips, a team building challenge course, and several other fitness facilities on UI campus. All of these amenities mean that there is something for everyone to enjoy in 2022!
