Lifetime Activities is a community-based physical activity program that evolved from a 1974 concept created by Dr. Patricia K. Fehl. At that time, Dr. Fehl served as Chair of the Department of General Physical Education and managed the academic basic instruction physical activity classes.  This is what led to offering classes, without the academic credit, for youth and adults in the community. Today, West Virginia University’s College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences continues to offer a variety of non-credit instructional activity classes and programs to the community and provide opportunities for individuals to participate and stay active throughout one’s life span. Year round classes are offered in aquatics, martial arts, gymnastics, fitness, wellness, and more, and held in various campus locations. 

West Virginia University will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. Anyone needing disability related accommodations to participate in  Lifetime Activities should contact Mary Kinsley at or 304-293-0859.
