People running

A part of living a happy, healthy life is taking care of your body. As a resident or fellow at the University of Maryland Medical Center, you have access to a number of programs to help you stay in tip-top shape. 

University Recreation & Fitness (URecFit)

URecFit is a multi-floor gymnasium right across the street from UMMC's downtown campus. 

With three floors of recreation and fitness options, there's something for everyone to enjoy. The facility has an indoor pool, a gymnasium with two basketball courts, more than 90 cardiovascular stations and a powerlifting room. URecFit also hosts intramural sports leagues throughout the year.

Take a look at URecFit's eligibility and rates.

Intramural Volleyball

We have an intramural volleyball league open to residents, fellows, NPs and PAs. No experience necessary!

  • When: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays at 6pm, November through June.
  • Where: URecFit, across from the hospital, in the gymnasium. 

Games will be 6v6, so we'll have slots for 12-14 players each game. Participants do not have to play every week nor be a member of the URecFit gym.

You can register as a solo player or with a group of friends. 

If you have any questions, email Gloribel Olexa, MD, at
