Move more — get started today!

Whether you are taking a walk on your lunch break or gardening, introducing physical activity into your daily routine can help you improve your physical and mental health. In recognition of Move More Month, we invite you to explore upcoming events and resources designed to get you moving more for better health.

UF Resources 

Explore our weekly faculty and staff fitness classes – Sign up for cycling, learn new dance moves at Zumba or drop in for a lunchtime yoga session. Live-streamed and prerecorded classes are also available. 

Join the Take 10 Campaign and take 10 minutes each day to be mindful of your health and wellness. Use this time to complete a short workout or explore campus with our UF walking maps

Calm offers daily move sessions to get you on your feet. Explore the For Work library for sessions tailored to your workday. Don’t have Calm? UF faculty and staff can sign up for a free subscription by completing this form. 

Switching up your commute is another way to improve movement throughout the day. The Bicycle Commuter Support program offers in-depth one-on-one counseling to connect cycle commuters with resources on-campus, online and in the community to make their commutes successful.
