All group fitness classes will be hosted in the Campus Center Functional Training sides (East & West) for the Spring 2021 semester due to academics using the group fitness studios. Refer to the group fitness schedule website for class offerings.

Our Functional Training area - East & West sides are located on the third floor of the Campus Center above the back courts. This area is equipped with a Precor Queenax that encourages participants to utilize their body weight with suspension training, battle ropes, or a punching bag. Additional pieces available for use are two sleds, weighted tires, Plyo boxes, Bulgarian bags, slam balls, kettlebells, core bags, medicine balls, boxing combination pads, and more.

The University of West Georgia, based on guidance from the USG now and in the future, plans to open its campus for all employees and students for the Spring 2021 term. The information listed in UWG’s Return to Work Plan describes UWG’s method for bringing everyone back to campus in a safe and responsible manner. University Recreation has specifically outlined a detailed plan for maintaining patrons' safety throughout all facility operations and program offerings on our UREC Spring 2021 Operations page.
