In the midst of midterm season, fitness isn’t always a priority.

Many students struggle to maintain a steady gym schedule that doesn’t interfere with classes—or well-deserved Netflix binges. Fortunately, the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center offers a wide variety of group fitness classes suitable for gym novices and pros alike.

Monday: Meditation

Multi-Purpose Room 4

7:30 – 8 p.m.

Instructor: Wyndham

End your stressful Monday with a calming session of meditation under Instructor Wyndham’s guidance. Breathe through any anxiety about homework or deadlines and soothe your mind for the week ahead.

Tuesday: Power Yoga

Multi-purpose Room 4

4 – 5 p.m.

Instructor: Tiffany

An advanced version of your normal yoga session, Power Yoga requires a bit more endurance. It’ll keep your muscles healthy and limbs stretched for those long walks to your car at the day’s end.

Wednesday: Aqua Zumba

5:45p – 6:30 p.m.


Instructor: Beatriz

It’s Zumba in water form. For anyone curious about the dancing group of swimmers in the Natatorium every Wedneday, check out Beatriz’s class. Bring your goggles for good measure.

Thursday: Group Cycling

Multi-Purpose Room 1

7:30 – 8:15 a.m.

Instructor: Jasmine

While most spin classes around town cost upwards of $20 per class, take advantage of a free group cycling class. For students who love bike riding, it’s a great way to keep in shape.

Friday: Night Club Cardio

Multi-Purpose Room 1

7:00 – 7:45 p.m.

Instructor: Myles

If you intend on going out this weekend, be sure to attend Night Club Cardio to practice your best moves. It’s similar to Zumba, but with a dance club edge.
