Black and Gold, Fit and Bold

The mission of the UAPB Wellness program, Black and Gold, Fit and Bold, is to promote and improve the wellness of the campus community by empowering each employee to become physically active and demonstrate health-promoting behaviors. The intent is that the benefits gained individually and collectively by each employee will be compounded and manifested throughout the campus community.

The goals of the program are to:

Promote physical activity, healthy behaviors and wellness among members of the campus community.

Educate employees on the benefits of physical activity and healthy behaviors and/or risk factors associated with chronic disease and reduced health/wellness.

Offer programs emphasizing awareness, prevention, and positive health behavior changes

To achieve these goals, the program aims to:

Provide on-campus physical activity programs and promote other opportunities on UAPB campus and in the community that encourage employees to be active. 

Provide materials for knowledge and skills to improve and maintain health that may enhance academic and/or work performance.

The Black and Gold, Fit and Bold program offers various physical activities to our employees throughout the year for a small fee. Some of those physical activities include line dancing exercise, water aerobics, aerobics, Zumba and lap swimming. The community may participate in these activities for a fee. You may find the listing of the dates and time located on the Wellness website or through Campus Bulletin.
