Group Fitness provides advance class registration for many high-demand and space-limited classes. Advance registration for these select classes takes place via the FSU Rec app or the Rec Connect web portal, up to 25 hours prior to the class start time.

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.

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.

To claim your registered spot, you must arrive and be in the studio no later than 10 minutes prior to class time (15 minutes for Spinning).  Late arrivals will be moved to the end of the standby line.  No shows are subject to penalty including restrictions on future registrations. Doors close 5 minutes prior to class time.

If you cannot make the class you registered for, canceling as soon as possible and at least 1 hour prior to class time is appreciated to open spaces for other users.  Group Fitness registration cancellations are completed via the FSU Rec app (touch the Rec Connect Portal icon) or in any web browser via the Rec Connect web portal and login using your FSU login credentials.

Select My Profile, then Programs in the left sidebar. A list of your registrations will appear. Locate the registration you need to cancel and click on the three dots at the right end of the line. Select Cancel from the menu. The status will change to Cancelled when complete.

Excessive cancellations or no-shows will result in suspension of registration privileges, with a minimum suspension of 2 weeks.
