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 to try during Free Fitness Week!

Our next Free Fitness Week will take place during Spring Quarter from April 4 to 10.
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.
