The Student Recreation Center is now open. Due to ongoing work on the chillers' mechanical systems, staff will monitor the weather and adjust the building hours if the temperature is unsafe for physical activity.

Group Fitness Policies and Procedures

  • All group exercise class participants must be at least 13 years of age or older.
  • It is highly recommended that participants stay for the entire group exercise class to ensure participation in the proper cool-down and stretching phase of the class.
  • All equipment must remain in the multipurpose rooms and must be returned to its proper location after use. Equipment from other areas may not be brought into the multi-purpose rooms.
  • Personal items can be stored in the cubicles provided in the multipurpose room, in the coin-operated lockers or in the locker rooms.
  • Only non-marking athletic shoes are allowed in the multi-purpose rooms.
  • All participants are encouraged to bring a towel and water bottle.
  • No food or drink, other than water, is permitted in the group exercise rooms.

  • Registration opens 25 hours prior to the start time of class; registration is first-come, first-serve.
  • Participants should arrive at least 5 minutes before the start of class to secure their spot and set up their equipment.
  • If a participant is not at least 3 minutes early, they could potentially lose their spot.
  • If a participant does not arrive prior to the start time, their account will receive a no-show strike.
  • If a participant registers for a class they do not attend, their account will receive a no-show strike.
