Haas participates in the campus wide WorkFIT program, a fitness program sponsored by UC Berkeley’s Department of Recreational Sports. As such we offer to our staff and faculty an in-house fitness program where certified fitness instructors come and lead regular classes in the Faculty Building.

These are professionally led, inexpensive sessions designed to get you moving and stretching during your day, get reinvigorated for the afternoon and evening, and improve fitness without making an extra trip to the gym!

The trainers are excellent and offer modifications to each exercise if you need to adapt around your individual physical issues. And all classes are geared to be self-paced, so you never need to exceed your comfort level if you don’t want. All classes are drop-in; no minimum attendance is required. WorkFIT is also a great opportunity to meet with colleagues outside of work.
