  • Outdoor Fitness Walk: Get moving and spend time outside with our new walking class. This class will meet in the lobby of Jacobs Fitness Center and participants will head outside for a 30 minute group walk. AU RecFit Fitness Leaders will guide participants in a walk, as well as some stretching. This class is no cost and open to faculty, staff and students. 
  • STRONG by Zumba: Although provided by Zumba, this is not a typical Zumba dance class. This is a full body exercise routine combining body weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training.
