Wellness at Home

In light of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s order on Monday, March 16, 2020 to close fitness centers and gyms and the rapidly evolving situation with the novel coronavirus in Ohio and nationally, it is unclear when we will be able to re-open. Your wellbeing is still important in this uncertain time, so we want to make sure Wellness Center staff, trainers, and instructors can support you.

Use this page as a resource to help you continue your fitness and wellbeing practices during our closure. Our staff, trainers, and instructors will update this page with workouts, tips, and more to help you.

If you have questions, please reach out to us at wellness@antiochcollege.edu.
