Group Fitness Classes
2018 summer group fitness classes are open to ALL KSU faculty/staff and EFC members to participate in FREE of charge. * If someone is not a member, they will need to fill out & sign a few forms before participating.
* Most of our classes are designed to be all levels so you can participate at your own level of fitness. The instructor will try
to offer variations so you can find the level you are most comfortable performing throughout the class.
EFC Recommendation: If you are new to a class, it helps the instructors if you arrive on time for the class and take a moment
to introduce yourself to the instructors. This way they can familiarize themselves with any injuries you might have, as well
as, find out your current activity level so they can provide you with your best experience in the class.
