The University of the Virgin Islands Wellness Center, located on the St. Thomas campus, has been offering aerobics and weight training since September 2010. During this time, we influenced people to improve their fitness and wellness by exercising at our gym and participating in our classes.
We provide a 6,250 square foot facility that houses a variety of fitness equipment, capable of suiting your fitness needs. We have MTS (motion technology selectorized) equipment designed to target individual muscle groups. Squat, bench and pull-up stations are available for compound movements. We also offer a wide array of cardio equipment to improve your metabolism for fat burning.
Fitness classes are hosted in our 2,800 square foot aerobics room. If these classes do not suit your needs or schedule, P90X, Insanity, and X-Factor fitness videos are available to use at your leisure. We can help you get on the right path!
A free total body analysis is available upon request. This analysis will give you an individualized body fat, muscle mass, water mass, and metabolic age report. With this baseline data, we help you chart your success!
At the Wellness Center, we are here to help you start, motivate you to continue and support your progress to your goals. Become a member and start your journey with UVI’s Wellness Center.Hours of Operation:
