Spring 2021 semester will look a little differently as academic classes will be held in our normal group fitness studios. Therefore, we are moving our group fitness classes to the Functional Training area (East & West) this semester so we can still provide a wide variety of fun, safe and effective classes to meet the needs of our participants and help them reach their fitness goals while also assisting academics. Our highly trained, certified instructors provide a welcoming environment and a fun & motivating workout experience. All classes include modifications for all fitness levels. 

Spring 2021 Group Fitness Schedule: Jan. 11 - April 30, 2021

Due to academic classes being housed in the normal group fitness studios for Spring 2021, all group fitness classes will now be hosted in the Campus Center Functional Training sides ( East & West) located above the back courts. Upon arrival, participants will check in with the instructor and then go to their designated workout area. Instructors will begin by communicating class procedures. A maximum of 18 participants will be allowed per class. Spots will be given to those who pre-register at myrec.westga.edu first, then on a first-come, first-served basis. Equipment-sharing is not permitted in any group fitness class. All users are required to clean equipment after use and encouraged to do so before use.
