Time to Get Fit 

The Athletic and Recreation Department is pleased to announce its new Fitness Class schedule for Fall 2017.

This year we are working with the YMCA of Lancaster, to offer a variety of class options on campus.   Please see the schedule and class descriptions below. To give everyone a chance to try out the new options, classes held September 11-14th will be at no charge.  Maximum class size is 30 people.  If you are interested in trying out one of these classes, just come to the class.  Come a few minutes early to sign in.  If you like the class, use the registration link below to sign up for classes for the whole semester.

All classes will be held in The Student Health and Wellness Center-Community Rooms.


Registration for these classes is for the semester.  Fee is $80 for the semester for any one of the classes .  You are welcome to sign up for multiple classes.  We will need to have a minimum of 10 people registered for any given class in order for it to be offered for the semester.  Due to room space, we will only be able to accept 30 people into each class.
