Wildcat Workout Project

Stick People Exercising Graphic

Healthy UNH and UNH Athletics present the Wildcat Workout Project

Beginning Tuesday, May 27th and running through Friday, August 29th, UNH Employees (and dependents 18 and older) can take advantage of group fitness classes led by coaches and fitness professionals from UNH Athletics. This pilot program is a series of 45-60 minute classes that will raise your heart rate, make you sweat, and still get you back to your desk on time. Shower facilities are available in the Field House (but bring your own towel and toiletries). No equipment is necessary. Wear weather-appropriate, exercise clothes and sneakers, bring your Healthy UNH water bottle, and be ready to work!

Three new workouts will be offered each week. Monday and Tuesday classes will offer one workout, Wednesday and Thursday classes will offer the second workout, and Friday will offer the third workout. 

Classes will be instructed by UNH Athletics employees:

Craig Edwards, Strength Coach
Anthony Brownell, Strength Coach
Meg Shea, Assistant Coach, Field Hockey
Dan Randlett, Assistant Coach, Men's Track and Field
Mira Frase, Certified Les Mills Instructor

People of all fitness levels are welcome!
Exercises and drills can be modified so everyone can participate.

 Change in date for the Independence Day Holiday

  • The 6:30AM morning classes will take place on Monday, June 30, Tuesday, July 1 and Wednesday, July 2. There Will be NO class on Friday, July 4th.
  • The Tuesday and Thursday class will resume as normal- at noon.

Where? Cowell Stadium (behind the Field House) - rain or shine! Don't be deterred by the construction. The best way to get there is by taking Colovos Road. Head towards the flag pole (walking on the bleachers a little) and look for the open gate. Workouts will take place inside and outside of the Field House.

Why? It's an opportunity to try something new...and it's fun! And healthy! And free!
