Getting Students Active

Opportunities at Tufts

It's hard to keep motivation and continue your workout routine. So, you may want to try a different activity or engage yourself in a new challenge. Here are some ways to continue your routine, increase your fitness level, and continue to have fun!

Gym Comes to You
Come out for free exercise classes in dorm lounges. Classes include Pilates, core training, kickboxing, Zumba®, yoga, and P90X–inspired activities; classes are taught by Tufts undergraduate and graduate students. The goal of GCTY is to motive students to work out regularly, gain necessary skills, and find an activity they enjoy. GCTY is a collaboration between BYL, Residential Life, and the Physical Education Department.
