Updated Exercise Class Schedule and Locations

See the latest information and updates on Health Promotion schedules, classes and screening.

University Recreation has been very supportive of the Department of Health Promotion to Faculty and Staff with our quest to temporarily relocate some of our exercise classes and Personal Training. It is a very kind offer to help us stay on campus to meet the needs of those who utilize our services.

We would like to encourage those of you who would like to participate in the classes we plan to offer at The Quinn and Mt.Mitchell as well as Personal Training to obtain the membership if you have not already done so. Please follow this link to learn more

Health Promotion Update - October 8th, 2018

October 8th, 2018


I would like to thank everyone for your continued support and patience! We cannot thank you all enough for the kind words as we sadly had to pack up Varsity Gym after so many years of use. We are committed to the Health and Wellness of ASU's Faculty, Staff, Retirees, Spouses and Domestic Partners. We have experienced outstanding support from so many departments within the college that have welcomed us into our new offices in Levine Hall, moved our equipment, offered their spaces and helped us navigate these challenges!

Our current short term plan is as follows:

  • We encourage people to use the Levine Hall Lab: M-R 7:30 am - 7 pm, F 7:30 am - 3 pm
  • We encourage people to obtain the Student Recreation Center Membership to utilize on campus options for exercise.
  • We will be offering "on campus" Personal Training in Mt.Mitchell and "off campus" Personal Training at Levine Hall beginning October 15th.
  • We will resume most of our classes October 15th. They will be offered at Leon Levine Hall, Mt.Mitchell and Quinn. We are fine tuning the schedule over the next few days and will post the final schedule soon.
  • We will continue to offer the Blood Screenings, Blood Drives, Health Fair (October 26th with Flu Clinic), The Black Saturday 5k (November 17th).

We are working closely with administration to learn of a long term resolution. Our goal is to offer you all the very best services, no matter where we are. Please feel free to reply with any questions, concerns, and ideas.

Have a wonderful evening,

Steff McDaniel
