The instructor seems to actually care about helping people improve their physical condition. I have definitely improved in strength and balance and her class always motivates me to continue to seek my goal.

EMPLOYEE FITNESS CLASSES

NEW FITNESS CLASS REGISTRATION PROCESS STARTED JANUARY 15th, 2018
We are excited to announce a streamlined process for employee fitness classes in 2018. We have partnered with Athletics & Recreation to house all fitness information in one place. The new recreation portal will allow you to view Employee Health & Wellbeing classes/programs, Recreation fitness classes/programs and Crossfit classes.

This new site will have an online registration format, which will allow you to ‘check-in’ to a class, guaranteeing your spot in the class. In an effort to reduce paper and manual sign-ins, we are asking our participants to begin using the new online check-in feature. The new system is user-friendly and can be used from a computer or mobile device. You can also manage your memberships, class passes, and see your complete order history.

This new system allows employees to easily move back and forth between Employee Health & Wellbeing and Recreation. This website is housed externally from UD, you will not need VPN to access. We have put together a short how-to video to and a step-by-step guide help you get accustomed to the new registration process.


Classes are run in a flexible format to better meet your needs.  We have added new locations and times for our classes and will continue to add variety.

FITNESS CLASS PAYMENT METHOD:  We are selling an annual membership that will give you unlimited access to our fitness classes for the entire fiscal year and more! This membership is valid from July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018. 

We are retiring the single class pass.  Many found this model to be a barrier to attending classes and it also does not allow us the flexibility to grow the fitness program and wellbeing offerings.  Before attending classes, purchase the annual membership and sign in accordingly.  

Wellness dollars can be used for the membership or may be purchased with cash or check. The membership is not prorated.

Strength & Tone: Strength and Tone focuses on strength training for those looking to strengthen and tone their bodies. We start with a warm-up and then go through a set of exercises to work on upper body strength, lower body strength, core strength or conditioning.

Strong: Stop counting the reps. Start training to the beat. STRONG by Zumba® combines body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training moves synced to original music that has been specifically designed to match every single move. Every squat, every lunge, every burpee is driven by the music, helping you make it to that last rep, and maybe even five more. In a one-hour class you will burn calories while toning arms, legs, abs and glutes. Plyometric or explosive moves like high knees, burpees, and jumping jacks are interchanged with isometric moves like lunges, squats, and kickboxing. STRONG by Zumba® instructors change up the music and moves frequently to make sure you’re always challenged to the max. Check it out!

Yoga: Focus on the breath in combination with various poses will help strengthen your body and your mind. Whether you are a seasoned yogi or new to the mat, this class is perfect for all looking to improve strength and decrease stress.

Zumba: Take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

Zumba Gold: Have you ever wanted to try Zumba, but been too intimidated to sign up? Then Zumba Gold is for you!
