With the announcement that UTA will no longer be offering exercise classes, students are starting to wonder what to do to get in that extra workout. Campus Recreation offers a solution.
We have always offered group exercise classes to members and will continue to do so. There is a low cost fee of only $30 per semester to be able to participate in all group ex classes, but the first week of each semester is free. These classes differ from exercise classes in that attendance is not mandatory and there is no grading procedure, therefore the class will not count towards a students GPA.
Campus Rec offers a wide variety of classes and hopes to add more during the fall semester to accommodate students. Below is a list of current classes and a brief description of each.
