Free Fitness Week
Also known as 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! 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 will take place from September 26 through October 2.
Remember, during this week 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.
