Winter 2015 Group Exercise Wellness Offerings

How it works 

  • There are no fees (really!) 
  • Attend any class
  • Student Employees are able and encouraged to attend (if it does not interfere with their work schedules).  These classes are not for credit - they are for personal health & wellness. 
  • Due to limited class size, student employees are welcome to participate with priority given to GRCC Employees in the event of a full class.
  • You are welcome to bring your spouse, child over 18 or friend(s) to these classes. 

How to sign up:

  • YOU MUST FILL OUT A HEALTH & WELLNESS PROGAM LIABILITY WAIVER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS.  The waiver can be found on the right side bar on this website or your instructor can provide one for you. One waiver filled out per year.

What to wear:

  • You don’t need to have an “outfit” – just bring some shorts or cozy pants and a t-shirt along with comfortable “gym shoes” and you will be ready to go!

2015 Fall Employee Wellness Class Descriptions

Yoga mats are available in Staff Development for anyone to borrow (and return of course). Please note the times of classes AND locations may be a little different than during the school year.   Please make checks out to GRCC.  Any questions please call Julie Otte x3490 or

Yoga with Julie & Simon

This class provides the student with a Yoga mat challenge that will focus on strengthening and conditioning the core muscles and getting sufficiently warmed up and centered. Students will also experience a flowing yoga series which will encourage gentle yet deep stretching and control.  All levels welcome.  Bring a yoga mat please.

Tae Kwon Do

The class will focus on the basics of kicking, punching, blocking and forms.  All levels are welcome as the instructor will work with you to succeed.  Tae Kwon Do helps with balance, coordination, confidence, concentration, and a great workout.  You only need yourself and comfortable clothing.  All levels welcome.


Get a great workout on the bike! This low impact class provides upbeat music, intensity and fun to motivate riders to cross the finish line. Instructors demonstrate proper bike setup and adjustments for a safe ride. Open to all levels.  You must bring water and a towel to this class.


Bootcamp is a high intensity quick workout.  Cardio, strength and endurance all happen in this 30 minute class.  Come and enjoy a great workout that is intense and fun!

Weight Lifting 101

Weight lifting 101 is an introduction to strengthening your muscles and how to lift weights properly.  This class is not designed to build bulk but to help participants learn proper techniques and increase lean muscle tone. Come and enjoy!

Total Body Sculpt

Experience this challenging and dynamic whole body muscle conditioning class using dumbbells, bands, tubes, exercise balls & body bars as resistance tools.

Butts & Guts

Train and tighten all regions of the lower body and core with this toning class.  Workout will focus on the abs, glutes, legs, and lower back using light weights and body resistance.


If these times and dates and classes don't work for you - or if you would like other options - due to our collaboration with GVSU, you may attend any and all of their wellness exercise classes.  Here is the link to their website: WGVU Wellness Website
