To use the Fitness Center you must be enrolled in either
PE 630 -1 unit – Fall/Spring
PE 635 - .5 unit –

The focus of the Fitness Center is Circuit Training, an exercise routine where you rotate between pedaling a stationary bike and lifting weights.  You rotate through the weight machines to exercise your legs, abdominals, shoulders, back, chest, and arms.

Circuit Training is a challenging cardiovascular workout. You will find yourself sweating with an increased heart rate.  It also improves your muscular strength and endurance.  Overall, it’s an excellent exercise routine for losing fat and gaining muscle. 

After completing one circuit, which takes 25 minutes, we encourage you to

  1. Workout on the treadmill, Stairmaster, elliptical, or recumbent bikes
  2. Lift weights with the PRECOR Multi-Station Unit or with free weights  
  3. Stretch, exercise with stability balls, medicine balls, Spri bands

All students who are taking one of the Fitness Center classes for the first time are required to attend a 2-hour orientation.  Students are not able to exercise until the orientation has been completed.  Orientations are ONLY offered during the first week of the semester. After that, you will not be allowed to enroll and exercise in the Fitness Center. There are no exceptions to our policy. Orientation times are listed in the Schedule of Classes. Please call if you have any questions: 323-953-4000 x2867

Wear exercise clothing to the orientation.  Instruction will be given on the correct weight-lifting technique and adjusting the machines for proper body fit.  Also, grading policies and final exam information will be covered.  Two hours of exercise credit will be given for attending the orientation.

Students with a disability who may need a reasonable accommodation(s) for this class are encouraged to notify the Coordinator and contact the Office of Special Services (CH 109, 323-953-4000 x2270) as soon as possible. 

Even though you do not need college credit, you still must enroll in the class.  We recommend you choose to be graded on a credit/no credit basis.  Obtain the credit/no credit form from Admissions and turn it in to Admissions before the deadline.

A grade of “C” or better earns Credit (CR) and 1 unit.  A grade of “D” or “F” will be assigned a No-Credit (NCR) grade and earns no unit.  This is listed on a student’s transcript.
