Meet the Instructors | Fall 2016 PrattFit Class Schedule
PrattFit group fitness classes are free to students, faculty, staff, and members. To participate in the PrattFit classes, simply show up 10 minutes before the class starts and sign in with the group fitness monitor at the Dance Studio door. Some of our classes fill up, so being in the studio helps ensure you get a spot in the class.
Group fitness classes are a great way to meet people and destress after a long day. We are committed to continuously refining and expanding our group fitness program to best fit the needs and expectations of all within the Pratt community.
Pratt Rec group fitness instructors are all highly qualified fitness professionals, each credibly trained and certified through a nationally recognized certification. PrattFit instructors strive to apply their knowledge and skill toward increasing the quality of program offerings and toward providing effective, safe and enjoyable experiences for all participants. Our instructors not only work to maintain and increase their own skills and improve their teaching styles, but also commit to the enhancement of the PrattFit Program as a whole. They create instructing environments that make all participants feel welcome and supported.
There are no PrattFit classes during the summer. Classes resume in September. Members can pick up their own schedule at the ARC.
