I’ve been around the group exercise classes in the new Cal Poly Rec Center for about two and a half weeks now (not because it’s my job or anything….). I wanted to offer a fews words and answers to FAQ’s.
Breakaway and BodyPump require that you reserve a spot in advance. This ensures enough equipment for all.
All other classes operate on a first come, first serve basis.
Zumba is by far the most popular class. If you want to Zumba, show up outside Studio Three AT LEAST 30 minutes early. The line fills up fast. Studio Three can accommodate 50 people under the fire marshal code. So if you’re in there, and you’re the 51st person, you’re a fire hazard. The ASI peeps hate turning you away. Really. But they will.
Cardio Kickboxing is the second most popular. Ditto the 30 minute minimum.
You cannot take one fitness class, for instance, Cardio Kickboxing, and hold your spot in the next class by simply staying in the room. This is unfair to other participants and makes you look like a fitness class hog.
You don’t have to bring your own yoga mat to yoga or pilates, you can use the ones already provided in the room. The Rec Center does not provide nice roll- up yoga mats.
You have to wear a shirt at all times, even during the fitness classes.
