UCCS Center for Active Living

To all of our patients/clients: In light of the public concern regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are doing what we can to keep you and your family safe. We are working in conjunction with UCCS, the El Paso County Health Department, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  At the current time the CDC and the local health department report that the risk to most people is believed to be low. Those individuals at the highest risk are those who have traveled to areas where widespread community transmission is occurring, those who have had direct close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19, and older adults with chronic medical conditions.

 

What can you do to prevent the spread of disease?

  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water  
  • Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer with at least 70% ethyl alcohol
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose with unwashed hands
  • Stay at home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • Avoid unnecessary travel

 

Signs and symptoms of Coronavirus include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

 

If you have had close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or recent travel from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19 and the above symptoms. Please call our office before coming to the clinic.

The Center for Active Living helps you create a lifestyle that includes physical activity. We begin with conversations about how you live and design a program that you can do long-term in your real world, everyday life.

Testimonials

“The staff at the Center for Active Living don't just tell me what I should do: they asks me what my goals are and what I like and don't like to do in terms of fitness. They are real people and seem to value me as a real person; together we are a team for my health and fitness. I like their enthusiasm, energy, positive yet sincere feedback, timeliness, and "extras" they provide, like videos of how to do my workouts.”
“They always impresses us with their enthusiasm, commitment and dedication. They are strong motivators and have a deep concern to making a difference in helping people lead more active lives.”
“They engage me with enthusiasm and sparkle as well as knowledge and skill. I appreciate being guided toward health a step at a time, building from what I can do to what I want to be able to do!”
“I loved their approach with our group. They analyzed each individual's weakness and modified exercises for each of us. I learned some new techniques and exercises that will help me not only with golf but with daily activities in general. I look forward to working with them again.”
“I loved learning many new golf warm-up and conditioning exercises and stretches, and how to strengthen my core. Even with 5 of us in the class, we all received lots of individualized attention and instruction. They were very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks so much!”
