Enjoy your favourite spin and group fitness classes under the new Boot Camps & Spin membership. All group fitness programs have the same names, but are now categorized as Boot Camps (ex. Butts & Guts).

For students, the purchase of a Boot Camps & Spin Membership or Punch Pass grants you access to classes that were once Spin & Group Fitness programs which are now listed as Boot Camps & Spin.

For staff, faculty, CSC/UNA residents, and the public, similar to Spin & Group Fitness classes, you will have automatic access to the same classes as before, but now they are called Boot Camps & Spin classes. (Don't forget that you have to have a Fitness Centre Membership though!)


As of September 1, 2019 all Boot Camps classes will now be a membership-based program. That means that instead of registering for a boot camp class to attend at fixed times for a certain number of weeks, purchasing a membership will allow you the flexibility to attend up to 29 unique boot camps per week for the entire term (16 weeks)! Attend one, or attend them all this fall!


Due to popular demand, patrons can now enjoy H.I.I.T and Interval Training classes as a boot camps class. This allows you to attend H.I.I.T and Interval Training as many times as scheduled per week as part of the Boot Camps & Spin Membership or 5-Punch Pass offering.

Notice: Flow Yoga Cancelled – July 2, 2019

Unfortunately today’s fitness class, Flow Yoga from 4:00-4:55 PM in the ARC Main Level Studio is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
