Fitness Center Better Gym

Have you ever signed up for a gym membership, but your plans to use it flew out the window? 

While there are so many great benefits to joining a gym, consider JJC's Fitness Center instead - it may be a better fit for your busy lifestyle as a student. Take a look at five reasons why the Fitness Center (located on Main Campus, G-1018) is better than your average gym below.

1. JJC's Fitness Center is cost-effective.

Membership only costs $25 a semester for students and $45 for community members. If you compare that to the cost of an average gym - which can range from $10 to $100 per month - you'll realize you're getting a steal!

2. Free yoga and pilates classes are available to you after you join.

If you're a Fitness Center member you can take advantage of free yoga and pilates classes. Take a look at the schedule for fall 2019 below!

Yoga classes
Tuesday and Thursdays, 1:15 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Pilates classes
Monday and Wednesdays, 1:20 p.m. to 2 p.m.


3. It's super convenient because you're already on campus.

Before classes, in between classes or after classes - you're already on campus, so why not take advantage of the Fitness Center's availability?
