Free Week at Campus Recreation helps employees kick off the new year

Campus Recreation is opening its doors to all CSU employees at no cost the week of Jan. 7-11, 2019. As the hub of wellness on campus, the recreation facility wants to help employees ring in the new year by supporting staff with their fitness goals.

With over 1,000 employee memberships active in 2018, Campus Recreation wants to give every employee the opportunity to see and experience the many programs offered at the Student Recreation Center. January is the perfect time to build your fitness goals and decide which program fits your personal lifestyle. There is something for everyone, so try out the possibilities to find what works best for you!

Free Week details

If you are interested in taking advantage of Free Week, stop by Campus Recreation anytime between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. between Jan. 7 and 11. Anyone who is employed at CSU can participate; all you need is your CSU ID to register at the Service Center. Come as often and stay as long as you like.

Campus Recreation benefits

Access to the award-winning Campus Recreation facility benefits employee members many ways, far beyond just a space to work out in. Try out aquatics, climbing, fitness classes, outdoor programs, massage therapy, personal training, intramurals, and drop-in sports, and more.

Family hours are another added benefit of joining the Rec’ing Ram fam through the purchase of a membership. During family and youth hours, members can bring in their partner or spouse and up to four youth (age 17 and under) to use the facility. Family and youth hours are Fridays from 3 Sundays at 5 p.m. Additional aquatic center hours include Thursdays between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.


Campus Recreation offers two membership options for CSU employees. The Full Membership is open all hours of operation with a yearly rate of $300. The Off-Peak Membership, at a yearly rate of $216, offers the benefits included in the Full Membership, but workout hours are restricted between 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays. Hours are not restricted over weekends and breaks. The chart below gives detailed pricing information for CSU employees.

During the fall, winter, spring and summer recesses, family and youth hours are from open to close every day.

In support of the University Commitment to Campus wellness initiative, CSU subsidizes the price of a Campus Recreation Membership by 50 percent for any full-time salaried employee, Administrative Professional employee, State Classified employee, part-time AP employee, faculty, instructors, Associate Researchers, and temporary AF/AP employees. That means you would only pay $150 per year for a Full Membership.

Finally, CSU employees and their spouse/partners are eligible for a free one month trial membership which includes a free one hour fitness assessment with a personal trainer. This offer is only valid for employees and spouse/partners who have not already taken advantage of their free month in the past. For the employees who have already used this option, the new Free Week event offered this January will allow them to check out the space again at no cost.
