Here’s some 100% free fitness classes at the RPAC to check out the university offers, all you have to do is activate your Online Fitness Pass at recsports.osu.edu.

Afternooners

TRXWednesdays at 12 p.m.

This workout is unlike anything you’ve seen before. TRX Suspension Trainers are super versatile workout bands that can challenge almost any muscle you want from legs to back to arms to shoulders.

Simply StrengthFridays at 12 p.m.

Simply Strength is your straight up workout where you’ll use traditional weights and machines as well as resistance training for a complete body workout. They say you’ll leave here energized for the day, but you’ll probably leave here energized for an afternoon nap.

Barre NoneThursdays at 4:15 p.m.

Improve your balance, core, and overall flexibility through ballet, Pilates, and yoga-inspired exercises.

Late Nighters

Cardio Barbell Mondays at 5:10 p.m.

If you are looking to improve your overall strength, look no further. This class uses a group barbell that progressively gets more and more challenging meaning you’ll be feeling every bit of gassed by the time this 50-minute workout comes to a close.

30/30Tuesdays at 5:20 p.m.

This class will put your endurance to the test as you spend the first half cycling through a terrain your trainer picked and the second half of the class is spent working on muscular strength through weights and bands.

STRONG by ZumbaThursdays at 7 p.m.

Zumba is all about moving and grooving while using your own body weight to strengthen and tone your muscles. This class is no different, it’s just way more high intensity to make sure you leave with a great workout, and probably a sore ass.
