Live Class Offerings

Zumba

Monday at 12:00pm in-person in the Diboll Studio, or virtually via zoom. 

Barre and Pilates Fusion

Tuesday at 12:00pm in-person in the Diboll Studio, or virtually via zoom.

The equipment used in class is optional. You can certainly do all these exercises without equipment. However, if you want a little something extra, you could use the back of a sturdy chair or wall for a barre. Instead of light dumbbells, you could use a can of vegetables or water bottle for 1-pound weights. Resistance band loops aren't necessary for a work-out, feel free to try the exercises without them. Gliding disks can be substituted with paper plates (if you're on carpet) or socks on a smooth surface. Use safe movement techniques when exercising making sure you have ample space around you. 

Strengthening Mat Pilates

Thursday at 12:00pm in-person in the Diboll Studio, or virtually via zoom.

You don't need "exercise"equipment at home to get moving. You might try using light household items like that bag of red beans in your cupboard or weighted tape dispenser in your office in place of 1-3 lb dumbbells. Always move at your own pace and with care.  

Wave Fit Video Playlist

Our Wave Fit Video Playlist on includes workouts created by Campus Recreation personal trainers. You can use these individual videos to build your own workout plan. Or, watch them in sequence to complete the two-week program. 

 

At-Home Guided Workouts

Try a guided workout also designed by our Campus Recreation personal trainers. Video instructions demonstrating exercises correspond with each workout. You can watch the video ahead of time, prepare your supplies, and find a space suitable at home.

Get creative if you're away from the gym and don't have your usual workout equipment. Household items can be excellent substitutes. For example, soup cans can be dumbbells with a little imagination, and a bookbag with books can be an at-home kettlebell.
