One of the fastest growing
career areas in the country is that related to health and fitness in both
the public and private sectors. Business and industry are becoming
aware of the increased efficiency of a work force where the wellness level
is high and medical costs and absenteeism are reduced. The health
consciousness of the general population is at an all-time high, and health
and fitness programs permeate our society through business and industry,
hospitals and rehabilitation centers, fitness assessment clinics, fitness
clubs, wellness programs projected through public and private recreation,
along with efforts of schools and churches to serve the needs of their
constituencies. At USF, the Exercise Science program provides the
training and preparation to meet these challenges.
The exercise science and wellness department is located in the Stewart Center (26th and Menlo) on the campus of
the University of Sioux Falls.
To contact the department, you can call the University of Sioux Falls at:
