Students who are looking for an affordable way to get healthy and have fun may want to purchase a Group Fitness pass, said Carole Valentine, health and fitness specialist.
Valentine said the $35 pass is an easy way for students to try out classes they enjoy and that fit their schedules without spending hundreds of dollars.
“The students can take whatever (classes) we offer,” she said. “It’s a perfect opportunity to find what classes you like.”
Valentine said there is no limit to the number of classes that can be taken.
“The classes are on monthly basis and begin of the first of each month,” she said. “[Students] will go in with their student ID and it will show … they have purchased the pass and will get a wristband to attend the class.”
Valentine said students can purchase a pass at the Wellness Center on the first floor of the Main Building.
The pass will be added onto the student’s OCCC ID and will show when swiped. The pass will not cover a locker Valentine said.
“Students will have to provide their own lock or buy a lock.”
The college offers a variety of classes including:
•Spinning class — an inspirational group training program with expert coaching, limited to nine people.
• Cardio kickboxing teaches students to use their hands and feet for self defense while increasing coordination, speed, and stamina.
• Water aerobics offers a shallow water exercise class that combines a variety of water workouts with exercises with and without water exercise equipment.
Zumba classes have been discontinued, Valentine said.
“The class was taken out but we are looking for a replacement, which we are considering putting in an Insanity (cardio) class,” she said.
Valentine said non-students can purchase an all-access membership.
“The all-access membership pass costs $270 for an individual,” she said.
A $50 membership fee also is charged, she said.
