Workfit class

Just in time to get you in shape for summer, UCOP’s WorkFit program returns this week and you can try it for free all week. You don’t even need to register. Just show up in your workout clothes.

WorkFit instructors can accommodate any skill level and any movement restrictions, so don’t hesitate to check it out.

Three membership options are offered, each of which allows you to take unlimited classes at either Franklin or Kaiser for the duration of the session:

  • Full summer session ($50) from May 12 through Aug. 21
  • First half-session ($30) from May 12 through June 26
  • Second half-session ($30) from June 30 through Aug. 21

Family and friends (over age 18) are welcome to join for the same low price.

For registration information and complete class schedules at both Franklin and Kaiser, see the links at the bottom of the Risk Services home page.
