The Kettering University Recreation Center: My Happy Place


For this blog, I wanted to showcase the Kettering University Recreation Center.  It is a great place to take a break from studying and try a class in Strength Training, HIIT, Zumba, Yoga, and Fit board aquatics.  For those not interested in a fitness class, you can learn a new skill by taking part in a tennis clinic, a martial arts class or a self-defense class. The best thing is that all group classes are offered to Recreation Center patrons for FREE!

If you think you can’t fit a class into your schedule, think again. Classes are offered on a variety of days and times including three classes that take less than 30 minutes, which makes it easy to find something that matches your interest and schedule.  Schedules for the Recreation Center are posted at

Do you play tennis or would just like to learn the game?  Come join Mark Taylor to learn or improve your game.  Looking for a game, stop in the Recreation Center on Wednesdays!

Have you heard about the well-known “exercise in disguise” that was inspired by Latin dance and music?  If not, come into the Recreation Center on Wednesday evenings, ditch the workout and join the party!

Is a slower moving class more your style?  Try yoga which will allow you to build strength at a slow pace, leaving you feeling better and more focused than when you arrived.  Looking for a more intense yoga workout?  Iron yoga will improve your flexibility, strength and cardio.

Fit Board Aquatics provides a unique aquatic workout by offering a core building exercises while adding some fun and excitement to your normal boring workout.  High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Aquatics provides a quick, satisfying workout by alternating short, intense exercise with periods of rest.

Want to learn more about yourself while increasing your self-esteem, balance, discipline and overall fitness level, try a self-defense or martial arts class.

High intensity interval training (HIIT) classes combine short bursts of vigorous activity with periods of rest.  Those up for a challenge should definitely attend a session.

Strength Training classes are designed with an instructor working with a small group of people to reach their personal goals of increased strength through proper technique and form as well as effective usage of the gym equipment.

The Group Exercise Room, located on the 3rd floor of the Recreation Center is equipped with workout mats, BOSU balls, body bars, flexi-balls, hand weights, aerobic steps, pull-up bars, warrior ropes, agility ladders, yoga mat/blocks, stretch bands, medicine balls, kettlebells and spinning bikes which can be used by groups, big and small, as well as by individuals.
