Commit To Your Fitness And Health
We are a leader in offering cutting-edge employee fitness and wellness programs to educate and motivate individuals to live healthy lifestyles.

Whatever you need to spark your motivation to get active and be well, UCLA Recreation has a program that will work for you.

Discover Your Potential
Enjoy the satisfaction of team competition through our UCLA Masters Swim Club, Golf Club outings, any number of Club Sports teams or an Intramural Sports team with your department.
