Why pay a lot of $$$ for a personal trainer, when WellU provides this resource to faculty/staff for FREE?!

Why pay a lot of $$$ for a personal trainer, when WellU provides this resource to faculty/staff for FREE?!

Do you want to get into a workout routine, but don’t know what’s right for you? Are you already working out but not seeing the results you desire? WellU has the perfect solution for you, Shape Up! Shape Up is one-on-one fitness coaching. Every employee at CSS and their spouse is eligible for three free sessions each academic school year. This program is meant to help employees get started with a fitness routine, or improve/mix-up one they are currently doing. Along with this, it helps you feel accountable for your health and fitness.

This past fall, WellU provided wellness programming to 205 participants. We are excited about how much faculty/staff are taking advantage of WellU resources, but we want even more of CSS to achieve wellness with the help from our programs!  Shape Up was proven yet again to be our most popular program, which is why we want to continue to spread the word about this awesome FREE resource!

Shape Up is offered EIGHT times a week! You can work one-on-one with Dr. Gen Ludwig, a certified athletic trainer, Tuesdays/Thursday at 4pm, 5pm, & 6pm and Wednesdays/Fridays at 7am. We have created the Shape Up schedule with your needs in mind. Visit or email for more information.
