About UNC Wellness

A Premier Fitness Facility, Backed by Medical Expertise

UNC Wellness Centers offer many of the amenities traditionally associated with a high-end fitness facility, but adds a variety of clinical, health education, wellness, disease management and other programs that distinguish the facility and programs from traditional or non-medically based gyms and fitness centers. Integration of clinical programs such as Cardiac Rehab and Physical Therapy, programming for a variety of populations, community outreach programs, financial responsibility, strong membership retention, high customer satisfaction, and a commitment to disease management are all critical components to the mission of UNC Wellness Centers. We integrate these components with our outstanding and professional staff to offer a broad array of programs and services that can only be available through a highly respected medical fitness center.

Your decision to adopt a healthy lifestyle is perhaps the most important choice you will ever make. UNC Wellness Centers provide the resources needed to help you reach your health and wellness goals. Whether your goal is weight loss, strength training, rehabilitation, or general conditioning, our programs and staff are here to provide safe effective workouts in an exceptional environment.

UNC Wellness Centers are built upon a tradition of quality service provided by the UNC Health System. As a medical fitness facility and proud member of the Medical Fitness Association, UNC Wellness Centers offer programs and services for members of all ages and abilities. Whether you are new to fitness or simply would like to continue or enhance your training, we have something for you.
