No-Cost Classes Now Available at the Recreation Center
Starting in September 2018, the Department of Athletics and Recreation began offering group fitness and wellbeing classes to all full-time undergraduates and graduates on the Homewood and Peabody campuses at no additional cost! Previously, students paid for access to classes like yoga, Spinning®, Pilates, Zumba, and kickboxing. “Fall 2018 had the largest attendance on record,” says Assistant Director for Fitness, Jackie Lebeau. “This increased accessibility to our classes would not have been possible without the support of the Hopkins Parents Fund!”
The spring 2019 group fitness and wellbeing classes begin on Monday, January 28. The complimentary Blue Jay Class Pass grants students unlimited access to 32 weekly classes. Classes include Dance Fitness (Zumba and African Dance), Spinning® (indoor cycling), High-Intensity Interval Training (STRONG 30, J.U.M.P., and Boxing Circuit), Yoga (Vinyasa Flow, Kundalini, Restorative, Smart Flow, and Yoga for Athletes) and Resistance Training (Barre and POP Pilates).
Students who wish to take advantage of the classes should stop by the Office of Recreation during business hours to pick up their class pass. The class pass is a sticker issued at the start of each schedule period (Fall, Intersession, Spring, and Summer) and attaches to the student’s J-Card. Classes fill up quickly so don’t forget to download the JH Rec app for iOS or Android to reserve a spot in class!
