Free Group Exercise on Campus

If you’re looking for a 30-minute lunchtime group exercise class but don’t want to buy a gym membership, the Department of Kinesiology has you covered. They are offering FREE group exercise classes for faculty, staff, and students every Friday in Yolo Hall, Room 213 (see times below). Physical activity in a social setting can elevate mood, improve memory, and increase work productivity. The classes, led by certified group exercise instructor Suzanne White, started as part of the Paradise U Community Project as a way for Camp Fire survivors to use physical activity to manage anxiety and improve health on their healing journey. The program has now expanded to include all campus employees and students. No obligations and no need to sign-up…just bring a water bottle and stop by as your schedule allows to one or more of the following positive exercise classes:

  • 11-11:30 Learn to STEP  (cardio fitness)
  • 11:30 -12 Intermediate STEP (complex and vigorous cardio)
  • 12-12:30 Cross Training  (muscular fitness)
  • 12:30-1:30 Advanced STEP  (complex and vigorous cardio)
