Our Mission
 
[FITTED] is a program designed to raise and retain consciousness of holistic health by providing free fitness and educational services to underrepresented student leaders on the UCLA campus; We do this through the initiation of dialogue between diverse groups as well as collaboration and partnership to create a welcoming environment that promotes personal growth amongst these students and ultimately influencing them to permanently incorporate the themes of our program as a way of life.

What is [FITTED] ?

[FITTED] is a 9-week, completely free program available for all students at UCLA. Through the generous support of our stakeholders UCLA Recreation, the Community Programs Office, Ashe Center, and the Bruin Resource Center, we are able to provide a support system intended to maintain the mind, body, and spiritual health of our UCLA student leaders. We are located in the CPO (Student Activities Center room 105A) and are open to any interest for the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. We believe that a healthy Bruin mind starts with a healthy Bruin body and are determined to provide the tools necessary so that they can instill them and take them back to their communities and families.
 
Workshop Component
Every 3 weeks, varying in theme, open to everyone! These workshops aim to provide participants with a spectrum of fitness and health topics outside of the [FITTED] workouts. Past workshops have included Martial Arts, Zumba, Bhangra Bollywood, YogaNidra, and more! Stay in touch with our Facebook and [FITTED] gmail to get information on our up and coming workshops!

[FITTED] 0.5
This program targets students that are overweight and/or live sedentary lifestyles. It is designed to provide students with a program that can help them address health issues as such and encourage them to participate in an active and healthier lifestyle. The program offers students one-on-one personal training sessions for a maximum of six sessions within a timeframe of three weeks in a given quarter. The personalized sessions provide the trainer with the opportunity to address the individualized and specific needs of prospective students in a safe environment. [FITTED] 0.5 ultimately serves as a funnel for students to continue being active in other [FITTED] programs or recreational classes. Students must be referred to the [FITTED] 0.5 from their Ashe Primary Care Provider and completed applications must be submitted at Ashe clinic stations.

[FITTED] Level Two: Promoting Optimal Wellness (POW!)
Take your fitness to the next level! After completing the [FITTED] 9-week program you are eligible to apply for free 1-on-1 personal training through our POW! program. POW! Is a 9-week long program where you get the opportunity to reach your fitness goals with the help of a personal trainer.
 
 
[FITTED] Clothes Closet
We firmly believe that a quest for health and fitness should not be prevented by barriers or by a lack of resources. For that reason [FITTED] has created the Clothes Closet, full of exercise clothing and equipment available for loaning on a one- day basis or for the entire quarter. Here students can check out shirts, shorts, shoes, balls, etc. free of charge to supplement their fitness endeavors.
 

Bruins Movin'

 
With support from UCLA Recreation and the TIE-INS UCLA program, Bruins Movin’ sends [FITTED] and volunteers out into the community to foster healthy habits within our youth in order to cultivate strong, capable leaders of tomorrow. We work with Nora Sterry and Brockton Elementary school children on a weekly basis to instill in them a firm understanding and confidence in their physical capabilities. We promote active movement and diversity within our routines to capitalize on children's natural ability to learn quickly and have fun. Sign up to be a volunteer here.
