The Adult Physical Fitness Program (APFP) was started in the late 1960s by Dr. Bud Getchell and has operated continuously since its inception. The mission of the APFP mirrors the educational, research, and service missions of Ball State University.

The Adult Physical Fitness Program Longitudinal Study

The Adult Physical Fitness Training Center is located in room 135 of the Ball State University Student Recreation and Wellness Center.  We have over 3,500 square feet of fitness space dedicated solely to our members. The APFP is designed for adults who can be classified as low or moderate risk for developing cardiovascular disease (according to national guidelines from health and medical organizations); however, the program does provide services for some individuals with chronic diseases. For specific information about eligibility, please contact the program office. 

The APFP provides daily exercise supervision and exercise counseling by trained staff. Members undergo comprehensive health screening and physical fitness testing, from which an individualized exercise plan can be implemented to help members achieve their health and wellness goals.
