Classes vary from semester to semester, so check back often to see what’s new!

You must be a member to participate in classes. Students receive a free membership as part of their tuition. 

Spin – Indoor cycling with high energy! Your instructor will guide you through a series of intervals designed to increase your endurance and strength. Pro tip: Attend this class in the morning to get your adrenaline pumping and start your day with a little extra energy.

HIIT It Cardio! – HIIT is high intensity interval training. You’ll give 100% percent effort for short increments of time with rest between each set. Pro tip: HIIT fluctuates your heart rate so you can burn more calories during a shorter workout.  

Kick Buffs! – A combination of cardio, kickboxing and resistance training that helps you build muscle, improve coordination and burn calories. Pro tip: Come ready to burn off any frustration, stress or extra energy.

Hip Hop Dance – Cardio meets your favorite dance moves. This is a high cardio workout that will get your heart rate up and your body moving. Pro tip: Love to dance? This is the class for you.

Zumba – A mix of low and high intensity moves set to music. This workout combines cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility. Pro tip: Zumba is an internationally-known workout that brings people together, so bring a friend!

Barre – Ballet-inspired workout that uses moves from pilates, ballet and yoga. This class will work on your flexibility, balance and core at a slower pace than traditional cardio workouts. Pro tip: Just because this class is lower intensity doesn’t mean you won’t get a serious workout.

Water Aerobics – This is an aerobic exercise done in the pool. It incorporates resistance training with moves like lunges and leg lifts that engage your core. Pro tip: This isn’t a swimming class – you’ll be standing vertically during most of this workout.
