School of Law Announces Wellness Partnership with Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine, EXOS

The University of St. Thomas School of Law, Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine and EXOS have formed a collaborative relationship to support the well-being of St. Thomas law students, faculty, staff and alumni. This partnership will contribute to the innovative ways the law school educates the whole person and currently promotes wellness, and will begin to address, at a local level, the growing health concerns within the legal profession.

The new wellness initiative will have three components: education, assessment and performance training, all based around the patented EXOS 4 Pillars of mindset, movement, nutrition and recovery.


Wellness education will be offered through a Wellness Wednesdays speaker series. Each session will be facilitated by Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine and EXOS staff members and focus on one of the EXOS 4 Pillars. Upcoming sessions include:

  • Oct. 2 - Introduction to Nutrition
  • Oct. 23 - Introduction to Movement
  • Nov. 20 - Mindset Check-in

Wellness Wednesdays are held in room MSL 235 from 12:30-1:25 p.m. and are open to law school students, faculty, staff and alumni. No RSVP is required. Additional sessions will be offered in the spring.


Law students, faculty, staff and alumni interested in gaining insight into their physical health or the effects of underlying stress and anxiety are invited to participate in wellness assessments. Using Acceptance and Action Questionnaire – II (stress and anxiety) or Athlete Insight Questionnaire (physical health) questionnaires, Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine and EXOS staff members will provide participants feedback regarding their health and steps they can take to improve it.

Those interested in completing an assessment should contact Lisa Brabbit, associate dean of external relations, at 651-962-4871 or, for more information.

Performance training

The third component of the wellness program, performance training, will offer students, faculty and staff the chance to utilize, at a discounted rate, Mayo Clinic's world-class fitness training facility, located just blocks from the law school in downtown Minneapolis. EXOS's training program is designed to build strength, endurance and flexibility, increase productivity and decrease the risk of injury. Performance training is open to current students, faculty and staff members only.

Anyone interested in performance training should contact Adam Maronde at or 608-385-8451 for more information.
