Drop-In Group Exercise
We have more than 100 weekly drop-in classes that are free with your Campus Recreation membership, including Full Body Workout, Interval Training, Indoor Cycling, Zumba©, and Ab-solute Core. Classes run from early morning until late at night, seven days a week.
Instructional Programs and Martial Arts
For those who like the group atmosphere but want a little more coaching and additional benefits, Campus Recreation FitWell offers instructional classes. For an additional fee Campus Recreation members can benefit from the lower instructor: student ratios, progressive results, personal attention, and familiar classmates. These classes are progressive in nature, therefore regular attendance is highly encouraged.
Small group classes are designed to give a maximum workout in a private group setting. These classes are progressive in nature, therefore regular attendance is highly encouraged. These classes have increased instruction and skill-based elements so there is a nominal registration fee at sign-up.
A current membership is requested to attend Small Group Classes.
Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or you are looking to change your routine, Campus Recreation personal trainers are ready to serve you. Check out our Personal Training page here.
Wellness Workshops are opportunities for Campus Recreation members to increase their health and fitness knowledge and improve training techniques. These workshops, provided by student fitness leaders are special offerings designed to teach new skills. Often these workshops are in collaboration with other units across the University such as Health Promotions, Counseling Services, and student clubs. Past workshops have included stress management, women's weightlifting, healthy food choices, and holiday highlight classes.
Social media and the Campus Recreation registration site are the best ways to learn about these special opportunities.
Fitness Instructors and Trainers
Our student fitness instructors and personal trainers are committed to health and fitness. They hold a national certification and have successfully completed a 16-week, 3-credit training course (Kines 93). Through this course, they gain leadership skills, fitness knowledge, and motivational tools to help fellow students become fit, healthy contributors to the Penn State community.
