Stay motivated with the newest and most advanced workout equipment in the fitness market today, such as the TRX, Synrgy 360, Core .., and much more. Bring your I.D. if you are not a member. Being that this equipment is so new, most people aren’t sure how to use it which is why we have arranged for FREE half-hour small group classes so you can learn (starting at noon – read on)
- Introduction to Meditation Classes
Close your eyes. Think of a really stressful time you had in your life; were finals the first thing that popped in your head? No, I am not a mind reader – students claim that finals are the number one cause of their stress. We have organized an INTRODUCTION TO MEDITATION class presented by our own Counseling and Psych Dept. in “Park Boulevard” Conference Room located on the first floor of the Student Union. Take the mystery out of meditation and conquer finals, don’t let them conquer you. We have several times to give meditation a try:

1pm – 1:30pm
4pm – 4:30pm

Synrgy 360 activities are designed to improve sports performance and endurance while increasing the lean muscle mass that revs-up your metabolism to turn you into a calorie-burning-machine.
- 5:30pm – 6:30pm: Biggest Zumba Dance class ever at SDSU!
What kind of event would we be putting on if we didn’t get to squeeze a little dance party in, am I right? We are going to be hosting our BIGGEST Zumba class yet in the fabulous Montezuma Hall. We have brought in one of the ARC’s best instructors, Liana T. Be a part of this one-time special event. As if this wasn’t cool enough, the first 100 participants get a free tote bag! Any level is welcome, no dance skills required. Arrive early and bring your I.D.
- 6pm: Free Movie Night
We are thrilled to present never before seen movie screenings of 180 Degrees South and Slow is Fast. In our feature film, 180 Degrees South you’ll get shipwrecked off Easter Island, surf the longest wave- and prepare yourself to ascend Cerro Corcovado. This film takes viewers on a wild adventure into nature following adventurer Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia. Slow is Fast is a short film filmed in September 2012; Dan Malloy, Kanoa Zimmerman and Kellen Keene rode bikes down the California coast hoping to see their home state in a new slower-paced light — surfing, camping, staying with friends and lending a hand wherever they could to earn their keep. Movie screenings are sponsored by your own wilderness and watersports Aztec Recreation programs: Aztec Adventures and Mission Bay Aquatic Center. Pick up your free tickets at the ARC Climbing Wall or Mission Bay Aquatic Center. Doors open at 6pm and screenings start at 6:30pm. First 75 arrivals get a FREE Klean Kanteen BPA-free stainless steel water bottle. Watch the trailer for our feature, 180 Degrees South, below.
- 7pm – 8pm: SDSU’s Biggest Yoga Class
ARC yoga classes are more popular than ever; so we decided to amp it up. We invite you to attend the LARGEST Yoga class at SDSU yet (our records show that the biggest yoga class so far is 105 people – so set us straight by commenting below if that’s not right). This is much more than just a class; we are opening the doors of the gorgeous Montezuma Hall in the new Student Union to inspire and relax you and maybe even create a closer-knit yoga community. Mat supply is our only limit, so please bring a mat if you own one. Arrive early and bring your I.D.
