The vision of UBC BodyWorks is to develop and deliver exercise programs for specific populations to assist with disease management and promote healthy aging. These programs provide an experiential learning environment for Kinesiology students to apply what they learn in the classroom and work with different clinical populations while developing leadership and coaching skills. The BodyWorks community will also support the research of the School of Kinesiology as a participant pool for study recruitment


To develop student leadership and kinesiology skills through the delivery of evidence-based fitness programs for older adults and people with chronic conditions.
