Open House Tonight!

Have you been wondering about what fitness and wellness opportunities are available for you at UMW, how to use some machines in the gym, or whom to talk to with fitness and wellness questions? You are in luck because Campus Recreation is hosting an Open House at the Fitness Center tonight, Jan. 26, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. There will be professional and student staff members present to show you around, discuss available programs and upcoming events, and to hand out free items! All faculty, staff, alumni, and students are welcome.

Staff Fitness Opportunity

While there are free group fitness classes at UMW, sometimes faculty and staff are looking for a private fitness opportunity to work out together. With Private Fitness Classes, you can work out consistently in a group of your peers while receiving personal attention from a seasoned instructor and genuine support from the group of people who are enrolled.

This program style runs for five straight weeks and meets twice each week, for a total of 10 workouts together. The cost is $75 per person and in order for a class to run, we must have 3 people register and pay.

The first session of Private Fitness Classes will be Jan. 30 – March 3. Registration is now open!

During this session, you can choose from 2 classes: Yoga on Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 12:50 p.m. or Body Sculpt on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.

If you have questions, please contact Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness Brittanie Haas at bhaas@umw.edu.

Wednesday Lunchtime Cycle Class

Hello Eagles!

Can’t come to the gym before or after work? Why not stop by our Lunchtime Cycle Class? Nancy, an experienced group fitness instructor and personal trainer, teaches a Wednesday Cycle 45 class from 12:15 – 1 p.m. It is free to faculty and staff!

Don’t forget that your EagleONE ID is required to access the Fitness Center.
