UCalgary’s fitness program rebrands as HealthyU, focuses on comprehensive wellness


The University of Calgary’s has rebranded one if its fitness program as HealthyU in an effort to reflect a more comprehensive approach to health and fitness. The eight-week fitness program has gone by TrymGym since its inception in 1972, but the program’s focus has since been reoriented from weight-loss to overall health. “The understanding of a definition of health is so different and particularly being a university program, we need to keep up with the research that is current,” explained UCalgary Active Living group fitness co-ordinator Rachel Hall.
