Registration Options

Group Fitness now provides class registration online for many high-demand and space-limited classes.

Online registration for these select classes takes place via Rec Connect at the Campus Rec web site up to 25 hours prior to the class start time, as described below. 

Other classes (that do not require sign-up) will continue to accept walk-in participants at the start of the class until the maximum is reached or until class begins.

How to Register Online

Online registration for designated Group Fitness classes opens 25 hours prior to the class time. Online registration closes 1 hour prior to class time.

Let us walk you through the process with our Step-by-Step Group Fitness Registration Guide.

Or, go ahead and get started. Visit Rec Connect at https://rc.campusrec.fsu.edu (or use the Rec Connect link at the top of every Campus Rec web page).

The Standby Line

When registration for a class is full, interested participants may stand in the standby line to take any available spots left in the class. There is a sign located outside every studio indicating where the standby line begins. Five minutes prior to class starting, the instructor will assess any available spots left in the class and allow people from the standby line to fill those spots.

Class Check-In

To claim your registered spot, you must arrive and be in the studio no later than 15 minutes prior to class. No check-in at the fitness desk is necessary. Late attendees will be turned away and incur a penalty.

Cancelling Your Registration

To cancel, simply complete our class registration cancellation form online.

Registration cancellations are only accepted via online form. Be prepared to give your full name, email address, and the name, date, and time of the class you wish to cancel. No in-person or call-in cancellations are accepted.

You must cancel your registration at least 1 hour prior to the class time in order to avoid a penalty.

Online registrations completed after the 1 hour deadline may not be cancelled without a penalty. 

Strikes are also accumulated when you no-show for a class.

On the second strike, a patron's online registration privileges are suspended for 7 days. The third strike results in a 14-day registration suspension. And four strikes results in loss of online registration privileges for the remainder of the semester (or at least 21 days, whichever is longer).
