Group Fitness Classes

J-Term 2014

“I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It over-comes almost everything, even nature.—John D. Rockefeller

All Classes are free of charge and available to Gustavus employees and spouses. Each class is designed to challenge all fitness levels, and you don’t need to be “in shape” to participate. I encourage everyone to bring a friend and give each class a try (you do not need to sign up or register for classes). Classes begin Monday, January 6th and end on the 31st. If you have any questions about any of the programs that are offered, contact Laurie Kelly x6145.
