Know Before You Go!
RecWell Fitness offers a variety of mind-body, land and cycling classes. During the fall and spring semesters, there are over 100 classes per week. A minimum of 2 participants is required to hold a class. Instructor class assignments can be found on our pdf schedule but are subject to change.
Group fitness classes are included in student fees and in all paid RecWell memberships. The free Limited Access Membership for faculty/staff does not include group fitness classes.
Before you take your first group fitness class, you'll need to complete the online waiver. You only need to complete the online waiver once. It is valid for the entirety of your RecWell membership. This will be checked upon scanning your ID at all of our studios.
If you are under 18 years old, download and sign the paper waiver and turn it into the Member Services Desk in Eppley Recreation Center.
Workout attire (breathable clothing that allows movement) and athletic shoes are required. Yoga and Barre classes do not require shoes.
Your UID card, a water bottle, and a smile. Due to space constraints, we do not allow bags/jackets into our studios (except Regents). Please secure these in a personal locker. Locks can be checked out for free at the ERC Equipment Issue Desk or the front desk in Ritchie Coliseum.
Attendance is limited by studio space and equipment, so arrive at least 15 minutes before a class is scheduled to start. Participants are let into class on a first-come, first served basis. For participant safety, no one will be admitted 10-minutes after the start of any class (the end of the warm-up).
RecWell fitness program staff are nationally certified group fitness instructors and personal trainers. Many instructors also hold speciality certifications in Yoga (RYT), Zumba®, Les Mills™ formats, Barre and more.
Yes, a private group fitness class can be requested by registered student organizations or UMD departments for their group. The cost of private classes is based on organization status and requested location. Private classes in RecWell facility spaces need to be requested at times that do not conflict with regularly scheduled group fitness classes.
“Let the enthusiasm and energy of the group be your fuel.”
