Wellness at Westmont
As members of the Westmont community, together we can create a culture of wellness by getting active and taking advantage of available resources.
In addition to healthy eating, regular exercise is necessary for good health. Joining other members of your community in physical activities that fit your level of ability and schedule can prevent disease, control weight, reduce stress, improve stamina, and boost energy. Group exercise and accountability also facilitates relationships within our community and provide opportunities to positively engage with others in the Santa Barbara community.
