Online Registration

In an effort to continue to provide innovative and convenient programming, University Recreation is extending the online pre-registration process.

Effective Monday, January 12, the Group Fitness will utilize for online registration of all Group Fitness Classes. In order to ensure a spot in one of these Group Fitness class formats, you will need to pre-register for the class. Once you pre-register, you are guaranteed a spot.

The Carmichael Gym is scheduled to undergo a facility renovation and expansion project. Starting January 2015, two studios in Carmichael Gym are expected go offline. As a result, the Group Fitness program will be holding classes out of fewer studios. With fewer offerings each week, we anticipate a greater demand in most classes. This could potentially lead to lines forming to drop-in to a Group Fitness class, and a greater chance of participants not getting a spot. In response to this we have decided to implement online registration.
