Find Out More About The Benefits of Being A UNH Employee

As a member of the faculty or staff at the University of New Hampshire, there are many different options for you to work out and get your daily dose of exercise.

First, you could become a member of the newly renovated Hamel Recreation Center! The membership cost is $41.50 per month, but if you are a member of the CIGNA health insurance plan it is completely free of charge. There is one catch, you must swipe into the gym at least eight times per month, or the designated amount will be deducted from your paycheck.

Second, you could workout with Wildcat Workout Project. This partnership between Healthy UNH and UNH Athletics offers group fitness classes led by coaches and fitness professionals from UNH athletics. All classes are located in the Field House in the Jerry Azumah Strength Center, and no equipment or prior experience is necessary. The Wildcat Workout Project is offered to all UNH Employees and their dependents (ages 18 and up) for FREE!

Lastly, you can work out with the UNH Employee Fitness Program.  This program is located in the Field House Balcony overlooking the basketball courts. Run by the Kinesiology Department, the Employee Fitness Program provides a real world laboratory situation for graduate and undergraduate Kinesiology and Exercise Science students. Equipment available includes treadmills, ellipticals, cycles, Stairmasters, rowers, strength stations and free weights. This program is open to all UNH employees, and users are required to sign in upon entering the facility. Typical hours for the Fall 2017 semester are 6:00am-8:00am and 11:00am-6:30pm.

As you can see there are plenty of ways to exercise and stay active around campus, even if that means just walking around and enjoying the sights!
