Our Commitment to Hopkins Well-being

Health, wellness, fitness, and community — these are the guiding principles of the programs offered through the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center. Our staff is here to engage you in experiences to improve your well-being, ranging from yoga classes to help build inner strength and reduce stress to exciting outdoor trips and courses that encourage and develop leadership, teamwork, environmental stewardship, character development, and transferable life skills.

Whether it’s quenching your thirst for competition or providing an opportunity to build friendships with others who love the game, we offer extensive club and intramural programs year-round. Looking to improve your fitness level or struggling to negotiate your own workout routine? Consider our fitness programs, including our personal training or group fitness classes as a fun and social change of pace.
