Fall 2010 WorkFit Program underway

Fall WorkFit Session Started Monday, September 20
Last week was filled with the laughter and camaraderie of OP staff trying WorkFit for free and experiencing the fun firsthand. If you haven’t signed up to be part of the fun, now is the time!

WorkFit instructors can accommodate any skill level.

For your $50 participation fee, you can attend any class, any time, at either location. That’s right: all for less than $1 a day! So what are you waiting for? Sign up now. When registering, disregard the screen that asks for your UC Berkeley employee number.

So get registered, grab your workout gear and join your colleagues to get fit and reduce stress!
