UBC is dedicated to fostering a healthy workplace and providing staff and faculty with opportunities to pursue options that build health and wellbeing. Regular physical activity and overall fitness is part of a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle, but it can be challenging to fit this into our busy schedules.
