The X Pass provides flexibility, multiple options and unlimited access. All X Pass classes are offered 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. Show your pass to the instructor prior to class, and have fun!
The cost for an X Pass for Fall Quarter has been reduced to $30 for the remainder of the quarter! Purchase yours at the Student Recreation Center front desk!
Convenient pocket-size printed class schedules are available for free at the Student Recreation Center front desk and other various locations in the facility.
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 X Pass group fitness classes.

Free Fitness Week
Formerly called Demo Week, at the start of each quarter, the Student Recreation Center holds a Free Fitness Week. All classes are free during Demo Week! We don’t want you to buy a service you’ve never experienced, so this is a great opportunity to try out any of the classes we offer for free! Our Free Fitness Week for Fall Quarter took place from September 28 to October 4.
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 is always calmer.
By the second week of classes either you need to have purchased an X Pass and show it for admittance into all X Pass classes, or have purchased a $5 single-use drop-in pass.
