The Group Fitness Classes have different formats that focus on: Mind & Body, Strength & Conditioning, Cardio and Functional. These aid students in discovering which workouts they enjoy and are in the process of improving. I discovered all of the group fitness classes my freshman year at a Zumba class, and I began attending the other ones to try them out. Through the trials of the different group fitness classes offered, I was able to discover what specific workouts I enjoyed (more cardio and endurance), and I learned that I did not enjoy strength training. Personal Training is another option that OwlFit offers at the Kennesaw State University Recreational Center. The Personal Trainers at the Recreational Center create programs that fit students desired fitness goals and workouts to accompany. The prices of personal training vary dependent of the needs/wants of the student. Small Group Training fitness classes vary each semester, but they allow for students to intensely focus on a specific format of workout. The smaller classes create a more personal environment where the instructors develop a deeper relationship with the attendees. The Special Events at the Kennesaw State University Recreational Center motivate students on campus to create and stick to fitness goals, so they can participate in events that increase socialization and physical fitness. These events vary throughout the school year. The events are also a great opportunity for students to step out of their comfort zone and meet new people with similar fitness goals.
