Welcome to the Department of Physics  Fitness, Health and Nutrition web page,  PHYsically FIT!

The department recently formed a group to organize fun events with a fitness, health, and nutrition theme for staff members. The goal is to bring together anyone in the department who is interested in becoming more healthy, becoming/staying fit, learning about nutrition, and having fun along the way!

Our goal is to meet approximately once a month with a focus on a particular health topic. We will discuss and share related tips, resources, share recipes and fitness ideas. We would also like to organize anyone that would like to walk together on a (somewhat) regular basis.
