Commit To Be Fit: UNT Group Workouts
DENTON - In addition to a full gym, open basketball courts, an indoor track and an indoor soccer field, UNT Rec Sports is offering new group workout sessions. Each group will be led by an instructor, and workouts will begin the week of February 28.
With a variety of group workouts to choose from, students will have the opportunity to stay active and build relationships right here on campus.
“I wish somebody would have told me about this earlier,” James Mendoza Moreno said. “This is my first semester doing group workouts, and I’ve fallen in love with all the classes I’ve been in.”
Eagle Strength is a group training program that combines weightlifting with high intensity cardio for a well-rounded workout. Classes will take place every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Climb Strong classes provide strength and stability training while teaching participants proper climbing techniques. This class will meet at the UNT climbing wall every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Tread Strong works to build endurance and improve heart health through treadmill interval workouts. This group will meet in the main weight room from noon to 12:45 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday.
Dance Fitness meets every Tuesday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and utilizes intense dance workouts to improve cardio and endurance.
In the fall, Rec Sports plans to add a bootcamp-style workout that would take place outdoors.
“This is a judgment free zone,” Dance Fitness instructor Lee Yong said. “I would say to just try it at least once to see what you think. Group workouts are a really good way to get a good workout in and a really good way to have fun.”
Classes cost $35 per session, and registration is open now on the official UNT Rec Sports website.
