Frequently asked questions
How do I participate in a group fitness class?
To participate in group fitness classes, each participant must have filled
out a PAR-Q and have their ID card.
What is a PAR-Q and why do I have to fill it out?
A PAR-Q is a health form asking you a series of questions. Answering
all no's on the form allows you to receive a sticker on your facility ID card
and to participate in any group fitness class. Answering yes to any
of the questions targets a person as a possible health risk and is required
to get a physician's consent in order to receive the sticker on your facility
ID card and to participate in group fitness classes.
Do I have to pay to participate in group fitness classes?
No. As a member of the Student Recreation & Wellness Center (SRWC)
you have access to all group fitness classes.
Do I have to sign up for classes?
All participants have to reserve a spot in a class except for the classes;
Tai Chi, and Water Aerpbics. For reserving a spot in a group fitness class,
