UHCL Group Fitness offers safe, effective, and innovative programs to students and Recreation and Wellness Center members of all abilities.
Group Fitness Overview
Our classes are taught by certified instructors, mostly current students. We offer weekly classes during the fall and spring semesters with a reduced schedule during the summer that support cardiovascular training, strength training, flexibility, and more.
Whether you are an experienced participant who enjoys an extra challenge or a newcomer looking to motivate your fitness and wellness journey, our dedicated instructors will encourage and inspire you along the way.
