Our FitU mentors are students just like you! Therefore, they know first hand about the challenges of academic expectations and time management.
During the individual sessions, FitU mentors will assess your current health behaviors and work with you to explore the reasons behind your nutrition and activity decisions. They believe that you are the expert of your eating and activity dilemmas. Therefore, they are there to guide you as you come up with solutions to your own barriers to change.
