  1. Do I need to cancel my class reservation if I am unable to attend? Yes, in order to ensure we can accommodate all interested participants, we ask that reservations be cancelled so that others may join. You can cancel on the registration portal by logging in > clicking on profile > programs > registrations > cancel
  2. Do you have specific beginner or advanced classes? While we do not label any class as beginner or advanced, our instructors are trained to provide a variety of options to help every participants find the right intensity for their fitness level. At Campus Recreation we believe that all levels and abilities should feel welcome and find success in any class.
  3. What time should I arrive for class? We recommend arriving at least 5-10 minutes prior to the scheduled class start time. This is to help ensure that the instructor can get you checked-in and set-up properly before the class starts. Due to current COVID restrictions, participants will not be permitted after the class has started.
