X-Pass Group Fitness Classes
The X-Pass is a social and fun way to never get bored with your fitness routine! These group fitness classes allow participants to follow repetitive strength and cardio conditioning routines.
The X-Pass provides flexibility, multiple options and unlimited access. All X-Pass classes are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participating capacities are based on room size, the availability of equipment and instructor discretion. Click here for descriptions of the different group fitness classes currently being offered at the Rec Center.
The X-Pass is good for any classes on the schedule posted below. Show your pass to the instructor prior to class, and have fun!
The cost of an X-Pass for Winter Quarter is $45. Classes start January 12 and run through March 17. Purchase your pass at the Student Recreation Center front desk starting on January 8 or click here to purchase your pass online with a credit card.
If you are busy and can’t commit to a quarter-long group fitness schedule, you can purchase a $5 drop-in pass. This is good for a single visit to any group fitness class on the X Pass schedule.
Just purchase your pass at the Student Recreation Center front desk and show the receipt to your instructor!
At the start of each quarter, the Student Recreation Center holds a Free Fitness Week. All classes are free to try during Demo Week! We don’t want you to buy a service you’ve never experienced, so this is a great opportunity to try out any of the classes we offer for free! The next Demo Week will be at the start of winter quarter from January 12 to January 20!
Remember, during this week classes will be very crowded, but please be patient as everyone is getting the opportunity to experience our programs. The second week of classes is always calmer. By the second week of classes either you need to have purchased an X Pass and show it for admittance into all X-Pass classes, or have purchased a $5 single-use drop-in pass.
