Employee Fitness Programs

Employee Fitness Classes

Campus Recreation offers fitness programs exclusively for UMW employees. Each fitness program is 5 weeks long. Can’t make a few of the workouts? That’s okay! There’s no penalty for missing a few classes. We understand that it’s tough to commit to all 5 weeks. Just remember: some workouts are better than no workouts!

Group Strength Training
Group Strength Training is a circuit-based workout group led by an NSCA certified personal trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach. This training program will work through strength movements to improve function and mobility. Your trainer will provide the group with great attention to detail on form and technique. You can expect to perform full body movements on the mat, TRX straps, and using dumbbells. This class requires 4 registrations in order to run.
