Fitness and Wellness Opportunity Fund (FWOF)

 

The Fitness & Wellness Opportunity Fund is a fee waiver program, made possible from a one-year grant from the Wellness Fund, that is focused on lowering barriers to participation in wellness-related activities for students.

Through this fund, UC Berkeley students can participate in one Rec Sports fee-based program or activity costing up to $100 without charge. Some fee offsets are available for programs costing more than $100, including specialized personal training.

At the moment, FWOF can cover the cost of personal training sessions. At full operating capacity, Rec Sports offers a wide range of programs and activities to choose from including swimming and tennis lessons, personal training, CPR/First Aid certification, outdoor adventures, fitness workshops, and intramural sports. Please note, Martial Arts programs are excluded.

To participate in this program, please complete the Fitness & Wellness Program Request form. The form should be completed at least 14 days prior to the start of the program or service, to allow adequate processing time.

Please note, some programs are very popular and may have limited availability. Applications will continue to be accepted until available funds are exhausted.

For more information, please contact fwof@berkeley.edu.
