Our Fall 2020 Fitness classes were originally scheduled to end on Friday, Nov. 20th. With the latest proclamation from Governor Reynolds, our schedule was cut short by a few days due to the suspension of group fitness in fitness centers through December 10th.
Despite the vast array of changes, we still had a great experience with group fitness. We were able to offer approximately 75 in-person fitness classes each week this semester.
In conjunction with our in-person fitness classes, we have also been offering live virtual fitness classes via Webex. There is no limit on how many people can join. Those interested can register via our webpage and will be emailed a link to join the Webex meeting when the scheduled fitness class begins. These will continue to be offered as part of the Fall Fitness Class Schedule through Friday, Nov. 20th. After that wraps up, we have big plans in store to keep you active and engaged with Recreation Services throughout the extended winter break and beyond.
Enter: Fitness On Demand. Fitness on Demand is a passion project we have been working on since Spring 2020, even before the pandemic started. It’s a brand new fee-based service we created to provide 24/7 access to fitness classes from your home. We have been working all semester to have the library of videos ready before the winter break. With the extended time away and health and wellness being of utmost importance during this time, we wanted to provide at-home options for the Cyclone Community. Fitness on Demand provides an additional fitness outlet that would not normally be available.
You can now access over 35 pre-recorded workout videos in a number of different formats – Yoga, Pilates, Strength, HIIT, Barre, Core, and Stretching – created by our very own ISU fitness instructors. A variety of levels are offered to meet the needs of everyone, from beginners to experienced exercisers. We will continue to add and grow the library of videos in combination with our 100+ Instagram live videos – in total, we have over 4,000 minutes of fitness content. Fitness on Demand has something for everyone and we’re excited to share it with you!
