Developing physical wellness empowers you to take charge of your health to maintain a healthy quality of life.


Physical wellness means engaging in physical activity, healthy eating habits and participating in health promotion activities.

A quick trip to the Regis Neighborhood Health clinic could give you a more in depth look at your current health.

Biometric screenings provide vital health information for those looking to get a more in-depth look at their health. The screening is an evaluation to help provide past, current and potential medical problems and it is an important component in knowing about your overall wellness. Regis Neighborhood Health offers this screening at a low cost to you. In just 15 minutes you can get all of the following information on your health.

  • Full Lipid Panel (Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides)
  • Blood Glucose
  • Body Compositions (height, weight, BMI, body fat percentage, waist circumference)
  • A1c, PSA, TSH, cotinine and many other tests
  • On-site biometric screenings provide an easy, inexpensive and convenient way to know more about your health.

Biometric screenings also include the following:

  • Individual results: after each screening you will receive a personal copy of your results plus education on how to read your results and what to do with your results.
  • Expert health education: The licensed professionals at Regis Neighborhood Health will analyze your results for you and recommend the right specialist for your needs.  

Who knows, the specialist you need could be right here on campus!

Regis Neighborhood Health recommends that you come in to get a biometric screening every six months.

Fall 2017 Six-Week Weight Loss Challenge (WLC)

Join the Faculty and Staff Wellness Program for a weight loss challenge. The Wellness Program is offering a 6 week challenge that will begin on September 25th. You can sign up now to reserve your weigh in time slot during the week of September 18th. To sign up, email fitness@regis.edu with your full name and if you are a faculty and staff member or a student. This year we are adding a little twist to the challenge as well! Everything is individual and faculty and staff are competing against the students to see who can lose the most amount of weight. The winners will be determined by percentage of total weight lost, which is all based off of body composition. The faculty and staff winner will receive a punch card for the Regis Café plus some additional goodies and the student winner will receive a $25 gift card to the bookstore plus some additional goodies.

To keep track of your fitness and nutrition, either while doing the challenge or for general daily use, we recommend using MyFitnessPal. It is not just a website for recording your exercise and nutrition, but it also comes in a convenient app for your phone! If you are participating in the weight loss challenge, we recommend you use this program to help you stay on track with your goals because we all know the more you put into something, the more you will get out of it.
