What is Wellness?

Wellness is more than a workout-
it is a state of mind!

Exercise can be enjoyed. At the same time, you can achieve adequate fitness and a style that may follow you throughout your lifetime. To achieve and maintain fitness, you must exercise regularly. Exercise, combined with proper nutrition, can lead to a more productive and enjoyable life. The EAC Wellness Center staff will assist you in the opportunity to achieve the following:

  • Development of attainable goals
  • Reaching and enhancing those goals
  • Creation of a wellness life-style
