Spring 2023 – Group Fitness Schedule

Please note that all classes are appropriate for beginners to advanced participants; low to moderate impact options will be presented by each instructor. We ask that you work out at your own pace and/or level. All classes are 30 to 60 minutes unless otherwise noted and will be held in the Aerobics Studio (3rd Floor) unless otherwise noted. Instructor names have been provided; however they may change if necessary.

All participants should complete a Par-Q Health Questionnaire at the Recreation Center front desk PRIOR to participation. It is advised that you inform your instructor of any health concerns prior to each class. Also, for classes in the Aerobics Studio, please wear shoes that have not been worn outside so that the floor will remain clean and dry for the safety of participants.
