Welcome to Wellness - Physical Wellness

Hi everyone! I’m Elise and I want to share some of the resources Clemson has to offer regarding physical wellness! Making time to exercise can be really challenging especially once the workload picks up but there are so many different ways to get a good workout while also having fun. Here are a few ideas on how to maintain your physical wellness!

  • F45: This exercise format incorporates different workouts every day in unique and exciting ways. It focuses on high intensity interval training (HITT), circuit training and functional training with trained F45 coaches guiding you the whole way. It only costs $50 a semester and is well worth the investment.
