Group Fitness Classes

Group Fitness classes happen on both Abbotsford and Chilliwack campus. Fall classes will run September 10 to December 3, 2018, (with no scheduled classes October 8 and November 9)

Group Fitness classes are FREE for UFV students, as long as you have obtained a Group Fitness Access Pass!

How to get a Group Fitness Access Pass?

  1. First you will need to sign a waiver or informed consent. This can be done at the Client Service Desk in Abbotsford (E150). In Chilliwack, you can do this with the fitness instructor.
  2. Once a waiver has been signed you will be issued a personalized Group Fitness Access Pass.

How it works once you have your Group Fitness Access Pass?

  1. Prior to each class you attend you will need to “Check-in” by RSVPing to your desired Fitness class on MyCampusLife-Campus Recreation. See rules about checking in for Spin & Strength class.
  2. Show your Campus Card and your personalized Group Fitness Access Pass to the Instructor to gain access. Make sure you don’t forget your cards, or you might be denied access.

It is important to let the fitness instructor know if you are new to group exercise, suffering from any health conditions or recovering from injury. Being more active is generally safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active. For more information click here.
