Group Fitness

As the novel coronavirus COVID-19 continues to spread in Houston and around the world, UTHealth is taking additional steps to protect our students, employees, and community.  As of Saturday, March 14th, the REC is closed until further notice.  At this point, we do not have any answers regarding a reopening date or what fitness may look like in the future for us.  For now, check out all these available resources to keep your mind and body healthy during this trying time.  Most are free (or have free trial periods) and all can be done at home (with little to no equipment!)

Disclaimer:  These are only suggested resources, not promoted or sponsored in anyway by UTHealth or the Rec Center.

“Please be aware that participation in any athletic/fitness-related activities includes the possibility of injury.  By your participation in any of these resources/programs, you certify that you knowingly assume all risk and waive any claims or damages against The University of Texas System, UTHealth, their respective employees, agents, officers, Regents or representatives for, any injury or illness that may directly or indirectly result from participation at this program.  You are encouraged to obtain a physical examination from a doctor before participating in any exercise class or other athletic/fitness-related activity. 

If at any point you begin to feel faint, dizzy, any physical pain, or shortness of breath, please stop participating immediately ?and if symptoms persist, call 911 or your health care provider.”
