In a workout rut? Looking to meet new people? Want a fun way to stay in shape? 

Look no further then our own UNH Hamel Recreation Center! Every student’s activity fee, which is included in tuition costs, covers many of fitness classes offered at the Hamel Recreation Center! Classes are offered every day of the week at a wide variety of times to encourage students to participate. Classes range from belly dancing to strength training, bootcamp to yoga! All of the trainers are certified, and some are even fellow UNH students. Class descriptions are all available online, classes are usually an hour long, and classes range from beginner levels to advanced. 

One class offered is called “TRX” (total body resistance exercise), which challenges your core and balance, by using straps mounted to a bar and your body weight. Another class is called “Punkrope” which involves jump-roping drills, while listening to Punk music.

There is a different workout class for everyone. So grab some friends and try out a class today!

TRX

Before coming to a fitness class here, I had never heard of TRX but now it is one of my favorite workouts! It's a great workout for everyone because you are using your own body weight as resistance, so you can make it as easy or as difficult as you want. It's a total body workout and you can really feel it's effects on your muscles the next day.
