Group Fitness

The Upper Iowa Recreation Center offers a multitude of group fitness classes to assist in achieving any fitness goals. Group fitness classes are open at no additional cost to all UIU students and are available to UIU Employees and Community members for a small fee. While class offerings vary from one session to the next, common class offerings include Body Toning, Cardio Kickboxing, Low Impact, Muscle Attack, Bootcamp and Yoga.

Class offerings, class fees and group fitness schedules will be posted prior to each session. Classes are on a first-come, first-served basis. If the class meets its capacity, instructors have the authority to turn participants away. The UIU Recreation Center also reserves the right to alter or cancel class due to limited participation.
