A group fitness pass, which offers 12 different fitness class options, is now available to students, staff and members of the Recreation and Fitness Center for $50 a semester, Sport and Recreation Specialist Eric Watson said.

The group fitness pass offers more than $100 in savings depending on the classes you participate in, according to the OCCC Fall Fitness and Enrichment Programs guide.

The pass offers unlimited use of different fitness classes for one rate, Watson said. Group fitness passes can be purchased at the front desk in the Recreation and Fitness Center, with a valid student ID or Recreation and Fitness Membership, Wellness Center Attendant Kadi Crenshaw said.

Pass holder Beulaha Woods said she used hers to take a water class.

“… I really enjoyed it,” Woods said.

The Water Exercise class is a low-impact, shallow water exercise that combines a variety of water exercises, with and without water exercise equipment, Watson said.

Classes are from 7:45 a.m. to 8:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fridays.

“I love these classes.” said Student Computer Center Supervisor Mike Reeves.“For employees and students these classes are good ways to keep us healthy and offer good benefits.”

Reeves said he enjoys the Combo Aerobics, BOSU Blast and Body Sculpting.

He said the schedule of the classes helps him stay accountable to his workouts.

Combo Aerobics gives a combination of aerobics and interval training, BOSU Blast helps improve overall strength, balance, and coordination, and Body Sculpting keeps participants toned and fit, according to the OCCC Fall Fitness and Enrichment Programs guide.

Recreation and Fitness Secretary Jenny Kellbach said one of their most popular classes is Zumba, a fun cardio dance class.

All class schedules and class times are listed in the OCCC Fall Fitness and Enrichment Programs guide located at the front desk of the Recreation Center and posted on the wall.
