Unlock a Healthier You!
GatorCare is dedicated to bringing wellness opportunities to all UF and UF Health employees, regardless of health insurance coverage. We strive to create a culture of wellness in our organization and give employees the tools to develop themselves physically and professionally. If you’re dedicated to prioritizing your own wellbeing, then join us in our mission to help others in the field to live healthier lives!
GatorCare creates monthly individual walking challenges that you can enter and compete in virtually. With each individual walking challenge, you will be competing against other participants individually, meaning your steps and your steps alone will count toward your steps on the leaderboard. In addition to the monthly individual walking challenges, twice a year in April and October, the walking challenge will be a team walking challenge.
Gather your office for a free live workshop! Workshops can be conducted online or in person and include topics like meal prepping, stress management, meditation, and mindful eating. Presentations can range from 15-90 minutes depending upon your office needs. Workshops must be requested at least three to four weeks in advance. One of our wellness team members will reach out to you within 2-4 business days to schedule your team’s workshop.
Focus on your physical wellness with the following live fitness/wellness classes or recorded classes you can complete at any time. For live classes, you can join the GatorCare Wellness Team Monday – Thursday at 12 p.m. for 15-minute live-streamed classes focusing on strength, cardio, meditation, or stretching. Tune in on Zoom by registering for the classes below. All fitness levels are welcome, and no equipment is needed!
We believe that wellness is an integration of all nine dimensions and that each of us has our own balance of priorities within this model. We aim to deliver impactful resources to empower you to live your life fully. Explore our resources within each Window to Wellness by clicking on the button below.
