Free Classes

UFC members may take these classes on a walk-in basis.  Neither registration nor payment is required.  These classes are intended to offer a variety of fitness workouts at the beginner to intermediate level.  Those who want to participate at a more demanding pace may do so at their own discretion as long as they do so without disrupting the intent of the class.

Cardio Classes:

  • Cardio Cycling: Ride may include hills, jumps, flat roads, and a possible sprint to the finish line
