Employee Fitness Classes

Employee Health and Wellness has implemented a new model of employee-only fitness classes. Classes will be run in a more flexible format to better meet your needs. Instead of requiring a registration for each class, you will now have the option to buy an unlimited class pass or a single class pass. Attendees will be allowed in the class on a first come, first served basis.

The unlimited class pass will allow you to attend any class, on any day. You will be required to sign in once you get to the class to note your attendance, but no pre-registration is required. This pass is valid for the entire fall session.

The single class pass will allow you to attend one single class. If you would like to try out a new class, or just drop in as your schedule permits, this no-commitment option will allow you to do just that. Single class passes can be purchased at any time through the summer session.

To obtain either pass type, visit the registration page. Wellness dollars can be used. Both passes can be purchased at any time during the fall session and are valid through December 9, 2016.
