Staff and students were sweating it out on Wednesday 20 February during the annual Exercise is Medicine campaign.

This international campaign to promote healthy living and create exercise awareness at participating companies, was launched for the first time on African soil last year at the UFS.

Exercise is Medicine is an initiative which encourages health care providers to include exercise when designing treatment plans for patients. The programme was designed by the American College of Sports Medicine and it has a presence in countries such as Australia, Italy, China and Brazil.

As part of the programme launch, staff and students will attend presentations by prominent health practitioners and participate in a range of fitness activities, such as Taebo and Zumba.

The Wellness Division of the Centre for Health and Wellness has more activities planned for the rest of the year to keep Kovsies healthy.
