There are many advantages to working out with a friend. It offers a certain accountability. People tend to be more motivated when they hit the gym with a friend. Not only that, workouts are more fun when you’re not going it alone.

Universal Athletic Club understands that and encourages it. Today is Free Friend Friday at the Club. Bring a guest for free today (7 Friday).

Use this opportunity to try a class that you might have been intimidated to join by yourself. There are several classes today. They can be viewed at When you click on the schedule, the second page of the PDF includes descriptions of each class. Schedules are separated into Group Fitness, Aqua Fitness, Silver Sneakers, and Martial Arts, as well as the Basketball Court schedule.

The Club opened at 5 a.m. this morning and will remain open until 10 p.m. Grab your suit and enjoy a few laps or join an Aqua Fitness Class. The Aquatic Center will close at 9:30 p.m., as it normally closes a half hour before the Club closes. Shoot some hoops on the Basketball Court today. Café U will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
