Group Fitness Classes

Group fitness classes are a great way to add variety to your workout routine and have fun with friends while getting in shape. Let our certified instructors help you reach your goals with fun, energetic, effective workouts that fit your schedule.

Wondering if Group Fitness Classes are a Good Fit for You?

Try it out! All classes are great for all fitness levels from beginner to intermediate. Our instructors help you work at your level!

We try to schedule classes at convenient times to fit into your busy schedule, however, if you can only attend part of class, that’s OK. We just encourage you to warm up and cool down if arriving late or leaving early.

I'm Interested! How do I Sign-Up?

Signing up is easy. Visit the Health Education and Services Center front desk to purchase your class pass (pay by cash or check) and sign the Health Education and Services Center Waiver. Don't forget your Hawkeye Card ID.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

Please arrive a few minutes before class and inform the instructor of any injuries.

Bring a clean pair of non-marking athletic shoes.

After the fourth week of the semester, fitness classes must have three participants at the start of class time for class to be held. If there are only one or two patrons for class, then WellBeats will be utilized instead. 

Student Life holds the right to cancel any class at any time.

There are no refunds after registration.
