GroupX Fitness Classes

Group fitness classes are a great way to add variety to your workout routine and have fun with friends while getting in shape.

Wondering if Group Fitness Classes are a Good Fit for You?

Try it out! All classes are great for all fitness levels from beginner to intermediate. Our instructors help you work at your level!

We try to schedule classes at convenient times to fit into your busy schedule, however, if you can only attend part of class, that’s OK. We just encourage you to warm up and cool down if arriving late or leaving early.

Undecided? Come try out a class for free! Limited to first class trial only.

I'm Interested! How do I Sign-Up?

Signing up is easy. Visit the Health Education and Services Center front desk to purchase your class pass (pay by cash or check) and sign the Health Education and Services Center Waiver. Don't forget your Hawkeye Card ID.

Spring Session Schedule: March - May

What Else Do I Need to Know?

Please arrive a few minutes before class and inform the instructor of any injuries.

Bring a clean pair of non-marking athletic shoes.

If consistently there are four or less students attending class by the fourth week, the class will be cancelled for the remainder of the session to be re-evaluated.

We must have two participants to begin class. Classes can be cancelled for the day due to low attendance.

There are no refunds after registration.
