Online Registration

Students and UREC members can take group fitness classes like kickboxing at no extra cost.

  • Please note that you may register for any group fitness class to reserve your spot.  We strongly recommend you register for group fitness classes held after 3:00 p.m. in the Union on Monday through Thursday.
  • Begin by visiting the UREC Membership portal to sign up for classes and sign your participation waiver.
  • Sign in with your U of A username and password. If you have an Alumni or Family membership and do not have a U of A username and password email and request to access to online registration. 

  • Click on "courses" in the navigation bar, then use the class categories to narrow the list of classes. Note that only those group fitness courses are open for registration 24 hours prior to class time will be displayed. 

  • Group fitness classes close online 10 minutes before the start of the class.  

  • Select the "Add to Cart" button beside the course offering that you select.

  • You will be taken to your shopping cart. From here you can select "Continue Shopping" to add another class, or select "Check Out" to complete your order.

  • After selecting "Check Out", click the "My Account" link at the top of the page and verify that the course you registered for is listed in your "Additional Information" section. If the course isn't listed, go back through the steps of registration again. You should receive a confirmation email once you have registered for a class.
