UCAN’s uFit committee is committed to improving health and wellness in Urbandale by promoting an active lifestyle, healthy eating, and a positive outlook. uFit takes a three-pronged approach to improving the health and wellness of Urbandale residents:
- Active lifestyle – creating and supporting ways for residents to connect through physical activities, particularly in the parks and trails that make Urbandale a great place to live and work.
- Healthy eating – providing nutrition education programming and encouraging food choices that promote wellness.
- Positive outlook – highlighting the positive impact that physical activity and healthy eating can have on a person’s emotional well-being.

UCAN’s uFit committee hosts an annual “uFit Challenge” where 15 participants spend 12 weeks working toward their health and wellness goals. The program provides participants with access to LifeTime Fitness, a weekly nutrition course at the Urbandale Hy-Vee and much more. Applicants come from all walks of life — those wanting to lose weight to those making more educated choices about food and nutrition. Many participants find success along the way — in 2017, 12 Challengers lost weight, including two that lost over 20 pounds each. Challengers often experience non-scale successes with lowered blood pressure, improved cholesterol and lowered blood glucose levels. If this program could be a fit for you, apply by January 4th! The 2018 Challenge runs from January 24 – April 25. Applicants must live or work in Urbandale. If selected to participate, there is a $25 fee.
If you have any questions about the program or application, please contact Katie at 515-661-8706.
