Fitness Buddies

Program Description:

Fitness Buddies is a free program for the UCCS community to get moving together. UCCS students are available for you to work out and exercise with, or even accompany you on an outdoor hike or walk. A Fitness Buddy is not a personal buddy, but they can provide valuable motivation, accountability, and support to help you reach your wellness goals. With this flexible program, you can select the Buddy that matches your personal goals and interests after reading through bios.

Fitness Buddies!


Cynthia: Hello! My name is Cynthia and I am currently a Health and Wellness Promotion major at UCCS! There are so many ways to get moving here in Colorado Springs but the two that I enjoy most are hiking out in the sunshine and lifting at the Rec Center. I love trying new forms of movement like group classes, swimming, and anything that would be your favorite! I am comfortable in almost any situation, but really enjoy working out with other people, and that is why I became a Fitness Buddy! I will provide you support through all types of challenges and you can rely on me to be ready to attack any movement that we have planned for that day! I am looking forward to this new journey with you!

Katie: Hey there! My name is Katie and I am currently a Health and Wellness Promotion major here at UCCS. There is nothing I enjoy more than spending time outside, soaking up the Colorado sun. This includes hiking, swimming and group movement classes with friends! I love trying new forms of movement and meeting new people to try them with, one reason why I'm a great fitness buddy. Another reason is that you can always count on me for motivation and support through any challenge. For scheduling, my availability fluctuates based on school, however I am available most mornings and afternoons. I look forward to each and every journey. Let's get started!
