BodyWorks is an Outreach Program of the UBC School of Kinesiology. Our adult-oriented facility incorporates evidence-based practices into our programs and services, in addition to facilitating ongoing education and training to UBC undergraduate and graduate students. Our student based staffing and non-competitive classes creates an enriching and supportive environment for both the older adult, staff and faculty population.

Vision

Designed and run by the School of Kinesiology, UBC BodyWorks members enjoy an inspiring, supportive community that promotes health for every body and ability. The BodyWorks philosophy of exercise program delivery is to provide unparalleled fitness programming services for adults across the age span that blend athletic training principles with chronic disease and risk management and prevention where appropriate.

Mission

To develop and deliver exceptional evidence-based fitness programs and services that educate and inspire to enhance wellbeing, while facilitating excellence in student leadership and mastery of skills.
