Group Fitness and Small Group Training Classes
Yes. Registration is required for all fitness classes through the IMLeagues app, which will provide you with a QR code. You will use the QR code to check-in at each fitness class. No one will be allowed to participate in fitness classes without registering. You can register for classes beginning at 6am the day before classes are scehduled to take place.
Yes, a minimum of 2 participants are needed to hold a group fitness class. If minimum participation is not reached, the class will be canceled.
Arrive just 5 minutes before class (10 minutes allowed for BodyPump) to avoid gatherings and help ensure physical distancing. For participant safety, no one will be admitted into any fitness classes after it has begun.
Please ensure you have your IMLeagues registration QR code, a water bottle, your face covering (we recommend an extra to swap if the primary face covering becomes damp or wet), and we highly recommend your own personal exercise/yoga mat.
Yes, fitness assessment testing is only offered to RecWell members and UMD students. However, non-members may purchase a Bod Pod® body composition assessment.
The bod pod test is accurate to within 1% of hydrostatic weighing (the gold standard for body composition testing). The test uses the same volume displacement ideals but with air instead of water. The entire test takes 30-45 minutes.

Only certain types of Olympic lifts are permitted (squats and deadlifts). All other explosive/overhead movements are NOT permitted due to space constraints and safety concerns.
No chalk or liquid grip may be used in RecWell weight/fitness facilities.
