Spring 2013 Fitness Announcements
X Pass Group Fitness
The X Pass is a social and fun way to never get bored with your fitness routine. These group fitness classes allow participants to follow repetitive strength and cardio conditioning routines.
The X Pass provides flexibility, multiple options and unlimited access. All Group X Pass classes will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participating capacities are based on room size, the availability of equipment and instructor discretion.
The X Pass is good for any classes on the schedule posted below, including the water aerobics class given space is available. Show your pass to the instructor prior to class, and have fun.
Note: We are now offering discounted X Passes for the remainder of Spring Quarter for the low price of $30! Even with this reduced price, you'll still receive unlimited access to all our group fitness classes for the rest of the quarter.
Important: If you lose your pass, you will be required to purchase another pass at full price.
12:10 Fitness Express
For those with a busy schedule, we are offering special Fitness Express classes starting at 12:10pm and lasting up to 50 minutes. And best of all, these classes are absolutely free for our members!
Click here for a listing of the classes we are offering as part of our free 12:10 Fitness Express program during Spring Quarter.
If you are busy and can’t commit to a quarter-long Group Fitness schedule, then you can purchase a $5 drop-in pass. This is good for any of the Group X Pass classes.
Just purchase your pass at the Student Recreation Center front desk and show the receipt to your instructor!
At the start of each quarter, the Student Recreation Center holds a fitness class Demo Week. All classes are free during Demo Week! We don’t want you to buy a service you’ve never experienced, so come try out the classes we offer for free! For Spring Quarter, Demo Week took place from April 8-14.
Remember, during this week all the classes will be very crowded, but please be patient as everyone is getting the opportunity to experience our programs. The second week of classes are always calmer.
By the second week of classes either you need to be registered for a Fitness Reserve Class, or you need to have purchased an Group X Pass and show it for admittance into all Group X Pass classes.

Zumba Fitness classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.
Zumba Toning combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba moves. Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs.
