BearFit Beginnings
BearFit Beginnings is a program designed to help first-year students get acquainted with foundational aspects of fitness at Sumers Rec during their first 40 days on campus.

Our goal is to develop a sense of confidence in the gym by teaching a basic understanding about different exercises that can be incorporated into an everyday workout. Each class is conducted by a certified BearFit trainer who will provide both group and individualized attention as needed.

See the schedule and register for classes on the online rec store.

BearFit Skills
BearFit Skills is a series of complimentary classes open to every member of Sumers Rec with the concept to take any range of participants, novice to advanced, through a specialized exercise skill or piece of equipment.

Each class will have a different focus for the hour during which you will have the opportunity for hands-on experience performing the skill and learning how to utilize it within your own workout. You will work with one of our certified BearFit trainers in order to receive expert instruction and guidance and answer any questions you may have.
