Free Week is a chance for new and returning students, staff & faculty, and the general public to try out any instructor-led classes with UBC Recreation. 

Try out as many classes as you want, for free!

We welcome you to drop-in to fitness, yoga, Pilates, dance, martial arts, boot camps, and aquatics classes for free during the second week of classes of every semester. No experience is required. Try as many classes as you would like, and register for your favourites!

Free Week schedule:

Unfortunately, due to an illness, we have had to cancel the Barre Fitness class this week from 7:30-8:25PM. Instead, you can try the Barre Fitness class for free on Monday, January 15th and we will extend the series by a week to make up for the extra class.

Unfortunately, due to an instructor injury, we have had to cancel the Thursday Deep Core Aquacize this week from 12:05-12:50PM and the Thursday Shallow Aquacize from 7:30-8:30PM.
