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.
