Almost two and a half years since its inception and design, Tec de Monterrey has unveiled its first Wellness Gym, on the Estado de México campus (CEM).

This new CEM space became the first Tec campus to have a gymnasium 100% focused on the work of the institution’s integral wellbeing program. In the future, more on-site locations of this national initiative are expected to open on different campuses.

This space for students, located on the first floor of Building 9, is equipped with the necessary tools to develop the seven dimensions of wellbeing.

“This is an accomplishment for the campus, which is committed to launching projects that help us continue to empower our students and promote their wellbeing,” said Luis Raúl Domínguez, Dean of Student Leadership and Education.

“Take advantage of this space, because it’s our commitment as an institution to your personal development,” said Rashid Abella Yunes, Vice President of the Mexico City Region.

The program was initially launched virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.



Exercising the mind, intellect, and spirit

The Wellbeing Gym has five workstations that allow you to work on seven dimensions of wellbeing: emotional, physical, social, occupational, financial, intellectual, and spiritual.

Short activities will be offered and monitored by specialists from the Student Wellbeing department, allowing students to work on more than one dimension at a time to strengthen emotional, social, and even vocational issues.

“The intention behind the Wellbeing Gym is that each activity has a reflection, which is why they’re short activities. This encourages students to engage in introspection,” said Miriam Nava, Director of Student Wellbeing at the Tec’s State of Mexico Campus.

“There will always be a psychologist at each station to guide them through the activity,” she added.


“It’s a privilege for us as a campus to have this space.” - Miriam Nava


The seven dimensions of wellbeing

Dance classes, fitness, meditation, and social challenges are some of the activities that can be enjoyed in each area:

  • Flex ágora:

An open space in the style of a forum equipped to host those who want to reflect on their vocation, professional development, or improve their financial skills.
