Are you interested in working with a certified Personal Trainer? All personal training sessions will begin in a virtual platform. Packages can be purchased at myrec.wcu.edu. Keep an eye out for updates on our package offerings!

Always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. If you experience any symptoms of weakness, unsteadiness, lightheadedness or dizziness, chest pain or pressure, nausea, or shortness of breath, stop immediately.  Consult with your healthcare professional to design an appropriate exercise prescription tailored to your needs. 

The Group X  Schedule has transitioned to a hybrid platform. This means that all classes, aside from cycle, are offered both in-person and virtually. The in-person class capacity is 8 patrons. It is recommended to bring an additional face covering and mat or towel.  To purchase your Group X pass, visit myrec.wcu.edu to sign up today and receive the class link for access!

Tips for Social Distancing Outdoors

Here is some helpful advice from Outdoor Programs on how to get outside while social distancing:

  • Stay local. Now is not the time to go on that next big adventure. Traveling long distances can further spread the virus. Try exploring your local trails and parks.
  • Let’s meet up. Try to meet others at your destination and maintain social distancing once you arrive. It's better not to travel inside a car with others. Riding your bike is also a great option!
  • Avoid busy times on the weekends and afternoons. Fewer people out and about will reduce your likelihood of coming in contact with the virus. 
  • Avoid in-person interactions in stores, gas stations, restaurants, etc., when getting supplies and traveling to your local destinations. 
  • Keep it clean. Bring some portable hand sanitizer with you to keep your hands clean. Whenever possible, wash with good old fashioned soap (antibacterial) and water. 
  • Make good choices. If in doubt, err on the side of caution. The great outdoors isn’t going anywhere.
