Every year people make resolutions to get healthier in the New Year, but in college it is hard to find the motivation to work out. Luckily for students at SMU, the Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports offers Group X classes for students to attend so they can achieve their fitness goals.
The wide variety of classes offered caters to the just about every fitness desire. Everything from Pilates to cycling, there are Group X classes for any interest.
“My favorite classes to attend are Zumba and gravity, which is basically kickboxing,” said Group X trainer Lauren Botcher.
The classes are kept at a manageable size, between ten and twenty people attend each class.
“It’s predominantly females in the cardio classes, but males seem to like the strength classes more,” said Group X instructor Aubrey Richardson.
Marissa Moyer is just one of the many students who attends classes offered at Dedman.
“I like the variety they give because I can go to the classes that I want to tone and work for that day,” said Moyer. “If I want cardio, I can go to Zumba or if I want strength training, I can go to HIIT.”
There are multiple options for SMU Group X packages. The unlimited pass is $75 for a semester, while a 10 class pass is $25 and a single class pass is $4. More information on classes offered at Dedman can be found on the SMU Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports website.
