RocketWalk Boot Camp is collaboration between the UT Center for Successful Aging and Rocket Wellness. The free fitness program is open to all University of Toledo employees.

Classes will begin Monday, Sept. 8. Classes will be held Monday and Wednesday at noon at the University Parks Trail between Rocket Hall and the Student Medical Center.

The classes will run on an ongoing basis until Thanksgiving, then be re-evaluated to meet the needs of UT employees during the winter months.

Classes will accommodate beginner, intermediate and advanced fitness levels. Strength exercises will be offered at the end of some classes; these sessions are optional.

Darci Ault, outreach and education coordinator for the Department of Public Health and Prevent Medicine, will be the instructor for all classes. Ault is a nationally certified fitness instructor and personal trainer with more than 25 years of professional experience.

“We are launching this program because we recognize that our employees are such a valuable resource of UT. They are an integral component to the success and mission of The University of Toledo,” Ault said. “We want to enhance and assist the health and well-being of our employees in a way that fits their busy schedules.”

A free T-shirt will be given to all participants who begin taking classes in September.
