Presented by Commercial Fitness Solutions

We are proud to announce that the University of Dayton, Department of Campus Recreation is hosting Midwest FitFest February 20-22, 2015.

The inspiration for the very first Midwest FitFest was realized at a Region III Lead On conference in 1999. Since that time, this conference has been held annually at various schools around our region and the Midwest. The two-day conference is a wonderful professional development opportunity allowing undergraduate students, graduate students, non-student university-affiliated staff, and professional staff to work together to share ideas, network, learn new skills, and receive the continuing education needed for professional development. We are currently working on CEC's to be granted for attending certain sessions as well.


Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2015 Midwest Fit Fest.
