Summer 2015 Group Exercise Wellness Offerings

How it works 

  • There are no fees (really!) 
  • Attend any class
  • Student Employees are able and encouraged to attend (if it does not interfere with their work schedules).  These classes are not for credit - they are for personal health & wellness. 
  • Due to limited class size, student employees are welcome to participate with priority given to GRCC Employees in the event of a full class.
  • You are welcome to bring your spouse, child over 18 or friend(s) to these classes. 

No need to sign up - just join us!  It's a lot of fun!

What to wear:

  • You don’t need to have an “outfit” – just bring some shorts or cozy pants and a t-shirt along with comfortable “gym shoes” and you will be ready to go!
