Employee Group Fitness Classes

In keeping with our mission to enable healthy minds and bodies and per Washington University guidance, Wellness Connection is cancelling the current group fitness series to reduce any risk of disease transmission to our employees and instructors.

As part of our 8ight Ways to Wellness, benefits-eligible employees can purchase a subsidized pass for an 8-week group fitness series through a partnership between Wellness Connection and the Sumers Recreation Center. Our goal is to make it easier for employees to access group exercise classes at work.

Participants must present their payment receipt at the first class. Participation is FREE for current Sumers Recreation Center members – you do NOT need to purchase a pass.
