The OCCC Recreation and Fitness Department is offering current students an opportunity to participate in five group fitness classes free of charge May 13 through 18 said Intramural Sports Assistant Matthew Wright.

“During finals week students get stressed out over classes, grades and stuff, and it’s proven that exercise helps relieve stress,” Wright said. “So, we figured we’d offer some classes for free.”

Some of the group fitness classes scheduled include Theatrical Dance, Abs Express, Total Body Workout, Cardio Kickboxing, Yoga and Zumba.

“Students get to come in and see what the classes are all about for free,” Wright said. “If they enjoy the classes, then they can keep doing them through the summer and into the fall semester.

“It’s just a way for students to try out some new things and maybe relieve some stress during finals week.”

Students have free access to the gym and weight room year ’round, so activities such as basketball, volleyball, weightlifting and ping pong are open to all students with a current ID during regular hours.

Wellness Center hours are 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
