Group Fitness Classes

 

SouthFit's group fitness classes include cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and neuromotor skills. Our certified instructors will lead you in fun and effective workouts!

▼   General Information

All group fitness classes include modifications for various fitness levels; however, please read our class descriptions that detail the level of choreography and impact you should expect.

Classes are free for all currently enrolled USA students and Student Recreation Center members. No need to sign up; just come to any class, any time.

A member age 17+ may bring a guest to the Student Recreation Center for $10 per day. The guest fee allows access to the whole facility, not just fitness classes.

Dependents age 10-16 may attend classes during dependent hours, including the extended dependent hours in the summer. A parent/guardian must attend and participate in the class with dependents age 10-15.

Please check our online schedule (Google calendar) each day for class changes and/or cancellations. 

Water aerobics classes will be canceled anytime inclement weather causes the pools to close.
