Online Registration

In an effort to continue to provide innovative and convenient programming, University Recreation has planned to pilot an online pre-registration process.

Effective Tuesday, September 2, the Group Fitness will utilize for online registration of all Yoga and TRX® 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. Beginning as early as the Spring 2014 semester, Group Fitness classes are expected to be held in fewer studios and have fewer offerings each week. In addition, we anticipate a greater demand in most classes. The result of which could potentially lead to lines forming to participate in a Group Fitness class, and a greater chance of participants not getting a spot.
