New year, weigh less

Want to lose a few pounds in 2014?

Then it may be time to put down the cookies and eggnog and hit the gym. The UF Health Fitness and Wellness Center, located on Southwest 13th Street in the south campus parking garage building, is a great place to get in shape in 2014. The center is staffed by credentialed exercise specialists. And unlike most gyms in Gainesville, it has a medical fitness program through which members can obtain supervised workouts designed specifically around any medical issues. Memberships are open to UF Health employees as well as the public. Visit for more information.
