Group X Classes Keep BG Fit

The Fitness Program provides students and community members with the opportunity to improve and maintain good health. BGSU’s Fitness Program offers Group X classes at the Student Recreation Center (SRC) in flexibility, cardiovascular, and strength.

“There are 30 total classes offered for participants,” said Fitness Program Graduate Assistant Layne Davis. “Within these 30, there are there are 12 different types of classes offered this Fall Semester.”

The classes offered range from kickboxing to yoga, and are lead by certified, professional instructors.

“We have a little bit of everything,” stated Davis. “You are bound to find some type of exercise you enjoy, and if you enjoy it, you are more likely to do it!”

Among the more popular classes are AeroSpin, and Ab-Solute. AeroSpin is a spinning class with a format including climbs, jumps and sprints, and Ab-Solute strengthens the midsection.

Previous experience should not deter anyone thinking of attending a Group X class.

“All fitness levels are welcome to our Group Exercise classes,” Davis encouraged. “The instructors are trained to show modifications and help those who are beginners. However, if someone has an underlining health issue or an injury, it is always important for them to consult a doctor before beginning any exercise program.”

Reaction and feedback from participants in Group X classes has been positive.

“They love the instruction and motivation provided by the group exercise instructors,” noted Davis. “They also enjoy working out with friends and having fun while they do it.”

Group X passes cost $35 for students and SRC members and $45 for non-members. The pass gives the individual unlimited access to all Group X classes and can be purchased at the front desk of the SRC. For more information, please visit the Fitness Program’s Web site.
