"Try Before You Buy" - Free Classes All Week

Today (Monday, June 23rd) marks the beginning of our 14 week summer group exercise schedule, and as we've did at the beginning of the Winter and Spring term, we're allowing everyone to try any of our classes for FREE this week.

No passes or punch-cards will be required for admission to class this week, so all you need to do is show up ready to work out. NOTE that this free week does not include admission to our OPERS facilities, so a current Facility Usage Membership or Day-pass will be required in order to access any of our classes held within OPERS classrooms. We also recommend that you arrive to class on-time or even early, as space in each class is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

To plan your group exercise attendance for the week, please check our Summer schedule on our website ( or Google Calendars.

Summer Passes & Punch-cards Now Available for Purchase

Our Summer '14 passes and punch-cards are now available for purchase at the front desks of the OPERS Facility Center, Wellness Center, and West Field House, as well as online at Since this week is our free "Try Before You Buy" week, you have a week to purchase your passes or punch-cards before they'll be required for admission beginning Monday, 6/30.

Schedule Changes This Week (6/23-6/27)

Due to changes in our instructors' availability this week, there will be a couple of temporary changes to our schedule:

~ Monday's PILATES class (12:00p-12:55p @ 2300 Delaware Rm. B290) will be CANCELLED and RESCHEDULED for Tuesday at the same time and location.

~ Thursday's ZUMBA Xpress class (12:00p-12:40p) may be SUBBED, as our regular instructor is on-call for jury duty.


Employee Wellness Ends Free Punch-card Promotion

UCSC's Environmental Health & Safety Department's Employee Wellness program will not be continuing the free 10-session punch-card promotion that it offered during the Winter '14 and Spring '14 terms.

You can read more about the discontinuation of this promotion under the "Group Exercise" heading of the "Programs" section of their website ( Please direct any questions about this change to the Employee Wellness program (, rather than to our FitLife program, as we were not involved in the decision. Thank you.
