MISFIT Program

Welcome to the MUSC Weight Management Center's MISFIT Program. The MISFIT (Movements to Improve Strength and Fitness through Instructed Training) program is designed to expose participants to various and portable exercise movements, while providing them with specified daily workouts. More specifically, we will provide you with specified workouts each day, with the exercise movements included in the workouts being those that require little to no special equipment and which you can perform about anywhere (e.g., home, work, in a hotel, etc.).
