MCLB Wellness Program
The MCLB Wellness Program is open to civilian employees at MCLB Nebo. Civilians are encouraged to discuss with their supervisor their interest to participate in this program. Upon approval from their supervisor, the participants will be able to exercise three hours a week, for a total of three months. Physical activity will be permissible through the use of the base gym, tennis courts, racquetball courts, walking groups and the swimming pool during specified hours.
The Wellness Program is designed to kick start healthy habits and behavior modification and reduce physical and mental stress. The program is an effort to support civilian Marines in being less sedentary, in hopes of decreasing sick days, health problems such as hypertension or high blood cholesterol, back pain and many other ailments. The program is temporary; individuals can take ownership of their health and make it a part of their life permanently by continuing to exercise and lead healthier lives for a better quality of life.
