Students at Idaho State University (ISU) have the unique opportunity of having a wellness center on campus. The mission of the Wellness Center is to promote a holistic approach to health through providing opportunities that facilitate and support personal growth, either directly or through collaborating with other programs available at ISU, to positively influence the multiple dimensions of health: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and environmental. A wide variety of group exercise classes are offered through the GET-FIT Program. Classes include cardio/strength formats, such as including body sculpt and barbell, interval training and H.I.I.T.-type classes, Zumba®, Pound ®, and mind/body formats, such as Pilates and yoga. All classes are held at ISU's Reed Gym. The current class schedule for the GET-FIT Program is available at https://www.isu.edu/wellness/services/get-fit/.
The Wellness Center also offers fitness assessments to ISU students. This includes cardiovascular endurance, body composition, blood pressure, flexibility, and abdominal strength. Students have access to two free fitness assessments per semester. Other services provided by the Wellness Center for students at no cost for a limited number of sessions include personal training and nutrition/wellness coaching.
