To start you on the path toward better fitness and weight loss, the Center for Health offers the Virgin Pulse physical activity program. 

Virgin Pulse is open to all clergy (full or part-time ordained, provisional and licensed) and spouses. All lay employees (and spouses) of the conference, district and local church that are enrolled in the West Ohio health insurance are eligible as well!     Click here for more.


Get ready to think outside the gym. The Virgin Pulse program makes getting active not just another to-do, but a fun and integral part of your world. As a participant, you can now join a program where getting active & fit means getting great stuff! And ours isn't your typical stuff, you know. Our stuff is motivation, feedback, gadgets, tracking, challenges, prizes, more energy, feeling better, looking great... and rewards.
