Group Exercise Pass

All participants must purchase their semester pass ONLINE and complete an annual Agreement to Participate and Release of Liability form. Group Exercise program policies should be reviewed prior to purchasing your pass and can be found here.  All passes are good for the semester in which they are purchased.  A new pass must be purchased each semester. You must present identification to enter the Recreation Center and the Kelly Family Sports Center as well as to enter classes.

*After purchasing your pass, your pass goes directly to your Student ID! Therefore, there is no need to pick up a pass anywhere. Simply take your GVSU ID to class and scan in!*

*NEW* Class Pass Format Coming Winter 2015

What's different?

In the past, we had passes separated based on location. There were several different schedules with all the same purpose -- TO EXERCISE. Why not keep it simple and consistent? That's why we are excited to announce that we have moved forward with simplifying our pass options.

The only pass option that will be offered is the All Class Pass. The ALL CLASS PASS will give you access to ALL 40+ classes every week! We have made adjustments to the pricing in hopes that participants will try out new types of classes and use the pass to it's full potential. Enjoy!

This pass will allow access to ALL classes on ALL schedules during the semester that the pass is current. This includes, Group Ex., Spin, Functional Fitness, AND Mind/Body!
