Enriching Campus Life Through Fitness, Wellness and Recreational Activities

  The University of Texas at Tyler Department of Recreational Sports enhances student life and campus wellness through a variety of activities and programs for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

  • The fitness program features Tyler’s best fitness facilities, equipment, classes and personal training, providing great opportunities to improve your physical well-being.
  • Intramurals present competitive opportunities in individual, dual and team sports. Several tournaments, leagues and special events are scheduled each semester.
  • The UT Tyler Outdoor Adventures program provides recreational opportunities outside the realm of traditional competitive sports. The traditional outdoor events of hiking, paddling, rock climbing and cycling are included, along with non-traditional events like paintball, skydiving and zip lining.
  • The club sports program features instructional, recreational and competitive sports activities. Events include practice sessions and competitions against similar groups from other colleges and universities.
  • Wellness education: The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. While physical activity is one component of wellness other dimensions of wellness include: emotional, occupational, social, financial, intellectual, and spiritual areas. So take a hike, create a new hobby, explore oppor­tunities at a job fair, or attend a HPC meditation class. Think about how you as a person contribute to the environment and community. How do you build bet­ter living spaces and social networks? How is your life enriched through work and its interconnectedness to living and playing? Come check out our Wellness Wednesday booth offered throughout the semester for insight on wellness topics!
  • The UT Tyler Aquatics program features exceptional facilities and offers swim lessons and fitness classes that meets all your therapy, fitness and community needs, presenting great opportunities to improve your overall health.
