ABOUT OU FIT:

OU Fit is an award-winning employee wellness program that encourages overall health and wellness. Whether an employee is just starting a personal wellness goal or is an advanced athlete, our mission is to be a resource for employees to develop and maintain healthy habits while at work, and then share those initiatives with their families. 
The program's areas of focus are:

            1. Healthy Living 
            2. Activity
            3. Nutrition
            4. Prevention and Risk Reduction
            5. Community Service and Education

OU Fit is operated through OU Physicians wellness initiatives; however, all OU Medicine and OU Health Sciences Center employees are welcome to participate in the program, which follows a fiscal calendar year of July 1st through June 30th.
