Group Fitness Classes

It’s never too late to think about starting a fitness and exercise program. New beginnings are always a good time to start something new.

A copy of the group fitness schedule for October 2014 is online for your reference. For those of you who have never taken any of our classes, if you are interested in getting in shape and improving your health but don’t know where to start, we can help.

The Sports and Recreation Group Fitness Program offers opportunities to exercise and have fun at the same time. Classes include aqua aerobics, step aerobics, body sculpt, yoga, resist-a-ball training, tone and stretch, interval workout with cardio dance, Pilates-style mat workouts and ZUMBA. Individuals of all fitness levels are welcome in classes. Instructors will provide special assistance for those who may be new to exercise.

CSI students: Why not start the fall season off right by being active and taking a group fitness class? They are free for students. You do not need to sign up ahead of time. You can go to any and all classes that interest you. Just be sure to bring your student ID card. Remember, beginners are welcome in all classes.

CSI staff, CSI faculty, and members of the community can take advantage of the program by purchasing a Sports and Recreation membership that includes access to all that the Sports and Recreation Center (Building 1R) has to offer (e.g., group fitness classes, cardio room, weight room, racquetball courts, pool.)

Those who want to participate in group fitness classes only can purchase tickets for those classes. Group fitness tickets are sold in books of  five for $40. More information about membership fees and purchase of group fitness ticket booklets is available at the membership desk in the Sports and Recreation Center, Room 204 or by calling 718.982.3150. Membership desk hours are:

-Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00am to 8:00pm

-Fridays from 9:00am to 5:00pm

-Saturdays from 8:00am to 3:00pm

-Sundays from 9:00am to 3:00pm

Are you still a little hesitant about getting started? Give us a call at 718.982.3084 and we can talk about your goals and what might be an appropriate place for you to start.  Do you have ideas about fitness classes or services that you would like to see offered? Feel free to send suggestions or questions about the program to marianne.mclaughlin@csi.cuny.edu.

Note: The schedule for November will be posted online at the end of October.
