Fitness & Wellness
University Recreation's Fitness & Wellness department strives to promote healthy lifestyle choices that enhance the personal wellness of the greater APSU community through quality educational and activity-based fitness programs and services.
University Recreation offers a wide variety of classes that allow you to get a great
workout led by experienced instructors. Formats range from 30-minute focused sessions
to full hour classes. This program is intended to be drop-in in nature so that anyone
can attend a class at any point during the semester. Unless otherwise specified, classes
are taught at an intermediate level, while the instructors provide suggestions to
make exercises more or less challenging according to your personal fitness level.
Classes are FREE to anyone with a membership to the Foy Fitness & Recreation Center, including APSU
students, faculty/staff and affiliates.

Dress Code Notes
For a more detailed description of requirements, see the University Recreation dress code.
- Shirts covering the navel must be worn at all times.
- Closed-toe/closed-heel, athletic shoes must be worn at all times. High-heels, hard-soled
shoes cause excessive wear and can damage the wood floors and are therefore prohibited.
- Dress code parameters may be adjusted to accommodate certain class formats. For example, bare feet or stocking feet are permissible in mind-body classes (i.e., yoga and Pilates).
Minors are not allowed in group fitness classes without being supervised by a parent/guardian at all times and must participate in the class. All guest policies apply.
Spectators are not allowed in group fitness classes, regardless of age. This helps us ensure a safe and fun work out environment for all participants.back to top
Everyone should be able to participate in physical and recreation activities. This is accomplished through modifications in traditional sports, programs, and fitness training that allow participants and athletes to train and play alongside their non-disabled peers.
Our goal in introducing an Adaptive Recreation program is to raise awareness and provide opportunities for those of specialized populations to be physically active regardless of disability.
Many pieces of equipment in the fitness center can be modified and used for adaptive fitness training, including:
- Hand-Cycle (upper-body ergometer)
- Cable Machines
- Nu Step Recumbent Cross Trainer with a swivel-out seat and leg stabilizers if needed.
- and many other pieces that can be adapted for specific needs.
