Get Involved

3 WINS Fitness is a student-driven organization. Your involvement is an integral part in your success, growth, and happiness in this community. Our goal is to create a quality program with quality instructors and prospective leaders.

As we prepare for the upcoming Fall 2021 Semester we will be adopting a HYBRID program that involves in-person park programming as well as online programming. In this capacity we will continue to promote lifelong physical fitness for our participants and staff.

This is the PERFECT time for you to get involved to differentiate yourself from your KIN peers, gain valuable transferable skills such as public speaking, have the opportunity to receive a strong letter of recommendation, gain applicable experience in the field of Kinesiology, and improve your resume!

The one that YOU will tell to your interviewer for grad school, a job, or other post-grad programs. Simply showing up and writing “3 WINS Fitness” on your resume will not differentiate yourself, nor will it grant you a quality letter of recommendation. Control your destiny!
