The WorkStrong program
is a UC campus-wide initiative
that was created to help decrease costs associated with worker’s compensation claims. Physicians at Newport Urgent Care or Occupational Health will recommend faculty or staff members who have experienced a worksite injury to our program. WorkStrong is a free and comprehensive program that is designed to meet the specific needs of each client. Our goal is to provide a fun and challenging environment for education, awareness and improved health. Our mission is to empower WorkStrong clients with new knowledge and behaviors to support their health and well-being for a brilliant future.
WorkStrong Participants receive 12 weeks of FREE private sessions with a team consisting of the following experts: a Personal Trainer, a Registered Dietitian, and a Massage Therapist.
In response to COVID-19, there are several guidelines we have implemented to uphold the highest standard possible for cleaning and distancing practices. We currently offer the following:
- Initial Consultation: Virtual sessions only
- Personal Training: Virtual and In-person options
- Nutrition: Virtual sessions only
- Massage: Currently on hold (but sessions will not expire due to COVID restrictions)
Enrollment includes a FREE 6-month gym membership the ARC on the Main UCI Campus, or access to the Campus Recreation Fitness Facility in Building 52 on the UCI Medical Center Campus. It’s a great opportunity to focus on personal health with a personalized team of professionals. Over 200 UCI employees have enrolled in WorkStrong since we began the program, and the response has been fantastic. People love the results they see from this program.
WorkStrong is to be done on personal time, before work, after work, or during lunch breaks. For this reason, we are able to accommodate just about any work schedule and shift times to ensure the program is easily accessible to all.
