The AHPRC is dedicated to providing the tools and education to keep the Marquette University community moving, exercising to optimize health and wellbeing.  There are many benefits to exercising including boosting the immune system, cardiovascular function, musculoskeletal and mental health. In this time of physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping active is very important for the Marquette community as we are driven to a potentially more sedentary lifestyle. Physical distancing, however, does not have to mean social disconnection!

Keep up to date and in touch with the latest ways to keep active and exercising by following the AHPRC on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  Each week we will challenge you to stay moving and active. Tag your friends and family, and work together, virtually, to optimize health and performance during these challenging times!
