A: If eligible, you can purchase a group fitness pass. Once a pass is purchased, you can register for your spot in any group fitness class based on the type of pass purchased (i.e., semester pass, year pass, etc.). Make sure to arrive at your class early so you can check in with your instructor and advise them of any necessary health information or modifications you may need to participate!

Q: How do I register for classes after buying a group fitness pass?
A: Registering for classes is easy, and spots in a class are first come, first served.
- Login to RecRegister using your University and/or RecSports issued login information.

Q: How do I check in with the instructor before my class?
A: All participants will check in with the instructor before class in the studio or other facility space where the class is taking place. Make sure you introduce yourself, using your first and last name that is on your RecRegister account. This will allow the instructor to mark your attendance. You can also take this time to let the instructor know if you have any applicable health concerns they should know about, or if you will need assistance at any point in the class.
Q: I'm running late for my class. Will I be able to check in with the instructor?
A: You can check in and/or register for a class up to five minutes after the class starts. After that window has passed, no new participants (registered or not registered) will be able to join the class. This is for all participants' safety.
Q: I purchased a pass, but I want a refund. What is the group fitness pass refund policy?
A: Group fitness passes are non-refundable except for medical/health conditions, or other extenuating circumstances with verification. Pass holders may request a refund, but refunds are not guaranteed.
