Specialty​​​​​​​ Programs/Events

Throughout the year, we offer a variety of special fitness programs and events for different audiences and interests.

Fee-based Fitness Programs

These classes differ from our group exercise classes because you sign up for a four or five-week session and are guaranteed a spot in the class. The instructors are trained in the program and have the credentials to teach the specialty class.  The instructors are professional and dedicated and will motivate you to reach your fitness goals and we offer multiple class times for each program to work with your schedule. These classes are guaranteed to keep your workouts fresh and your motivation high. No refunds after the first class.      

This summer, we're offering TRX, SPARQ, Fitness Barre, and Compound Barbell.  Our next session starts July 6.

Starting May 12th, you must be a Recreational Services Member to purchase and participant in specialty programs.  


Special events from our fitness team include Zumba Parties, USA Weightlifting Certification courses, and Outdoor Yoga classes.


We offer workshops and instructional classes to introduce members to our facilities and equipment and teach new workout programs, skills, and techniques. Past workshops include Women and Weightlifting, Fitness demos, and programs for International students.
