Reach Your Goals With Group Fitness

Group fitness classes are included in the Aztec Recreation membership and are a great way to help you with your 2015 fitness goals! We offer cardio, strength, mind/body, and dance formats so you can enjoy a huge variety of classes that make exercise fun. Beginners are welcome; previous experience is not required! If it’s your first class, feel free to introduce yourself to the instructor prior to class. That way he/she will be better able to cater to your experience and fitness level. Check out the current schedule.

Looking to achieve internal balance and reduce tension and stress? This class uses breath-synchronized movement to create internal heat that purifies muscles and organs by expelling unwanted toxins from the body in the form of sweat. Dynamic, flowing posture sequences will build strength and flexibility. You will learn to set an intention for your personal yoga practice and take the necessary steps toward reaching that goal.

Heard of the at-home Insanity® program? Now it’s in your group fitness studio! This class utilizes the concept of max interval training, where longer high intensity cardio intervals are interspersed with short rest periods so that you can get the most out of your workout. All levels are welcome in this body weight workout that can increase your cardiovascular endurance, as well as muscular strength. Just one question: are you ready to dig deep?

ABOUT SDSU SPORT CLUBS
The SDSU Sport Club Program consists of 18 highly competitive sport club teams. Each club team is developed, organized, and managed by students with guidance from the Intramural & Sport Club Coordinator, Intramural & Sport Club Supervisor, and club team coaches. Each club team’s success is determined by the collective efforts and organization of the student athletes. Sport clubs enable students to enhance their collegiate experience and serve an excellent setting for the development of athletic skills, student leadership, and social outlets. The teams compete against other college and universities at the state, regional, and national level.

Enrolled SDSU students of all skill levels are actively recruited – many sport club athletes have never played their sport before joining an SDSU team. Any regularly enrolled SDSU student may join a Sports Club team. Students can join a club team by visiting the Sports Club website which has links to each clubs’ individual pages and registering a particular team or teams on-line.
