Group Ex - Dahlonega

If you have never been involved with group exercises classes before, don’t be shy. Classes are geared towards all ability levels, so bring a buddy and come check it out! Our instructors will motivate and guide you through various exercises, bringing fresh ideas and inspiration to your work-out plan.

Unless otherwise specified, classes have room for 30 participants. These spots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. To attend a Group Ex class, visit the Rec Center Front Desk and complete the waiver and get an attendee card. It is recommended that you arrive early to guarantee a spot (out of respect for the instructor and the class, guests will not receive a ticket if they arrive less than 5 minutes before the start of class). 

Please be aware that in order to attend two classes in a row you must leave the room and obtain another attendee card. Guests of the facility may not attend Group Ex classes.
