NEW!! Bring a Guest to Class Option.

New for a trial period until the end of the spring semester: Are you an RSOP member interested in bringing a guest to a fitness class? Good news! For the remainder of this semester, RSOP members are now permitted to bring non-members (including community guests) to join them in fitness classes, each at a cost of $15 per class.

Here are the requirements:

  • RSOP members must accompany their guests to the Information and Registration Desk to purchase the pass. Please note: If you and your guest are attending any classes prior to 8am, the member must plan ahead and purchase the pass the day before, as desk hours are Monday to Friday, 8am to 7pm.
  • Group Fitness guest passes are for group fitness classes only.  Facility access is not included.
  • Members are required to participate in the fitness class alongside their guests.
  • Guests must present the drop-in class pass to the fitness instructor to confirm payment.
  • No exceptions will be made to these requirements.

A friendly reminder: RSOP members MUST possess a fitness pass to attend fitness classes, unless they opt for the drop-in rate of $15 per class.
