FAQs

Group Fitness Classes

Most classes require a punch card, which offers low-cost access to our classes. Some classes charge a fee per session due to their limited space and/or progressive nature. There are a few free studio classes as well, such as Ab Lab and Functional Strength.
A "Punch Card" is your access to our group fitness classes in the Fitness & Recreation Center. You can purchase 1, 10 or 30 classes. Please bring your Punch Card to class so the instructor can see it.

A few of our group fitness classes require registration rather than a Punch Card. These include Pilates Reformer, TRX, and Active for Life. Registration can be done at the Fitness & Recreation Center front desk or on our online portal.

Some "Punch Card" classes may ask that you sign up for a particular session at the FRC front desk. This happens when there is limited space or equipment, and high demand. The current group fitness class schedule will highlight which classes have sign-ups at the front desk.

For all other "Punch Card" or free classes, you do not need to register, they are first come first serve. Please arrive about 5 minutes early to check in, secure your spot, and set up any equipment.

The schedule changes about every six weeks, with special schedules for Winter and Spring breaks and also Finals weeks. You can always find the latest schedule online or posted in the Fitness & Recreation Center.
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before class in order to check in, prepare equipment, and get yourself ready for a great workout. If this is your first time to a class, arrive 10 minutes early and tell instructor so they can help with equipment and answer any questions.

We offer "intro" Yoga and Pilates classes which are always a great place to start. Also, cycling classes are good for the novice exerciser because the resistance is self-selected. Any time you attend a class for the first time, please arrive 10 minutes early and tell the instructor so they can address any questions you may have.

No, sneakers will work just fine, but you may wear your cycling shoes to clip in, if preferred.
You may bring your own mat, but it is not necessary. We have mats to provide.

Personal Training Services

The fitness staff offers one-time consultations for a small fee, or more comprehensive Personal Training session packages. With these you get personalized information regarding your specific needs and fitness goals. You can also attend a free equipment orientation where you will learn how to use all the weight training and cardio equipment properly. You can sign up for either of these services at the Fitness & Recreation Center front desk.

We have a staff of Personal Trainers that are ready to work with you! When you are ready to begin, class 406-243-2833 or stop at the front desk of the Fitness & Recreation Center to schedule an initial appointment.
