[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 underrepresented student leaders 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. Please feel free to stop by our office or contact our email for any questions.
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!
Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00- 5:15 PM in Pardee Gymnasium. Learn proper technique and form on a variety
of exercises for safety and maximum results. Designed for all levels of fitness with variety and motivation being a key foundation.
Tuesdays from 4:00- 5:00 in the SAC basement. Informative session taught by Bruin Resource Center's Registered Dietitian Eve Lahijani. Wide variety of themes covered including conscious eating, nutritional awareness, stress- management, body image, and more! This component takes a more holistic approach than the average "diet" program on the scene today.
[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. Contact us through our [FITTED] gmail or come by the [FITTED] office in SAC 105A to learn more.
One of [FITTED]'s new additions to the program that focuses on the development of 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.
