Virtual Fitness

We are offering free virtual classes to provide a convenient way to move your body and revitalize your spirit while working and studying from home.

Class Descriptions

Need an extra push while you are at home? Push the coffee table aside and join us for our virtual boot camps.  These workouts are designed to keep you on your toes! We want to keep you guessing – each class is designed to be different and push you out of your comfort zone! We will challenge you every class! Our goal is to offer encouragement rather than intimidation. We want you to have tons of fun – but be prepared for some high intensity training!

Looking to set the tone of positive intention for your week? Or want to unwind after a tough week/weekend? These well-rounded yoga classes are great for beginners but also offer options for the seasoned yogi to feel challenged. Develop breathing techniques while improving your balance, flexibility, core strength, and endurance through various postures and breathing techniques. Participants will enjoy a satisfying workout while practicing a flow of postures to create internal heat while developing strength and concentration.

This is a new virtual fitness class designed for UBCO staff and faculty during your lunch break.  This class is a full body endurance-strength workout with minimal cardio so you feel energized to finish off your workday.

You will need a floor mat and a set of light dumbells (or soup cans).  If you don’t have equipment, we will adapt your exercises for what you have available.

Power Yoga takes its inspiration from ashtanga—a more intense, fast-paced style of yoga. It was developed as an attempt to make ashtanga yoga more accessible to Western students. It is sometimes referred to as “gym yoga” because it was designed to be intense enough to be attractive for Western athletes and gym-goers. Like vinyasa, power yoga is not a set series of poses which gives the instructor the ability to make each class a bit different which, we hope, will keep you coming back for more.

Feeling like your arms and legs get all the attention in your workouts? Refocus your workout by burning calories with some cardio exercises and then strengthen your core—the often forgotten, but most important, part of your body that supports all the other muscles. Each class will be a little different but you’re sure to leave feeling equally as sweaty and strong.

UBCO Recreation also offers a wide range of in person group fitness classes. To view the schedule, visit Group Fitness.
