Wellness Wellness at Bowdoin


We are pleased to provide a robust fitness and wellness program for Students, Faculty and Staff. With the assistance of Athletics, the Counseling Center, Student Activities and Human Resources, we have developed a flexible program to help you get and stay healthy.

The new schedule of classes starts on Monday, January 20th.

  • All Fitness and Wellness classes will be “drop-in.” No need to register in advance. Attending a class is as flexible as your schedule. The “drop-in” first come policy allows you to try or take classes regularly – there is no requirement to pay for and commit to a class for the full semester.
  • Classes are $3.00 and you pay at the beginning of each class using your Onecard account on your student ID card. Bring your ID to class and be sure you have funds available on your Onecard account.
  • Several classes will be offered FREE of charge.

Have you ever wondered what fitness equipment to use at the Buck Center and how? Starting on February 4th and every other Tuesday from 11:30 – 12:30 PM during the academic year, Neil Willey, Head Coach of Strength and Conditioning, will be available to provide an overview of and orientation to the training equipment available at the Buck Center. In addition, Coach Willey will be available to provide basic information related to initiating a work-out program within the Buck Center. Topics for discussion are likely to include operating instructions and suggested workout progressions for treadmills and related cardio equipment, as well as methods for effective and safe use of assisted and free weight training equipment in the Buck Center. Please contact Coach Willey in advance of attending a session in order to ensure an efficient orientation and discussion experience(

Bowdoin has negotiated discounts with our Community Partners and encourages students, faculty, staff to utilize their discounts.

If you have questions regarding our fitness class schedule, please contact Debbie Miller or Lorica Cummings in the Athletic Department office on the second floor of the Buck Center.
