Health Mastery

The Health Mastery program is designed with behavior change in mind. Four different Health Mastery topics (Personal Fitness Training, Recipe Book & Mindful Meals, & Stress Management) will be offered throughout the current fiscal year. An attendance/completion rate of 100% is ideal for setting the stage for future behavior change, but employees will be eligible for the wellness incentive if they complete roughly 90% of these programs.

Personal Training: Participants of the Personal Training Program will receive a maximum of 16 weekly Personal Training sessions.  Due to staffing limitations, this program is available to a limited number of participants.  If you would like to participate, please review the Personal Training procedures then watch for the announcement email from Human Resources.  If selected, your Personal Trainer will contact you to finalize your training schedule.

Recipe Book and Mindful Meals: This program is designed to further the connection between meal planning, shopping, cooking, and eating.  In this program, participants will prepare, consume, evaluate 10 recipes from the custom built SLCC's recipe book.  As a capstone to this program, participants will have the opportunity to learn how to incorporate mindful eating practices into their daily lives.

Stress Management: This 8 week stress managements program aims to educate participants about stress, the importance of having it, how to prevent it from causing harm, and how to grow through it.

Aging Mastery Program: Salt Lake Community College has partnered with Salt Lake County Health Department to offer the Aging Mastery Program.

The Aging Mastery Program (AMP) is a 10-week behavior change incentive program for individuals 55+ to master aging. Central to the AMP philosophy is the belief that modest lifestyle changes can produce big results and that people can be empowered and supported to cultivate health and longevity. Equally important, the program encourages mastery - developing sustainable behaviors across many dimensions that will lead to improved health, stronger financial security, and overall well-being. Another key element of the program is the reward system, designed to both motivate and encourage ongoing participation.Weekly guest speakers come to educate and encourage mastery of aging on the following concepts:

  • Navigating Longer Lives
  • Exercise and You
  • Sleep
  • Healthy Eating and Hydration
  • Financial Fitness
  • Medication Management
  • Advance Planning
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Falls Prevention
  • Community Engagement
