Fitness and Health
Hawaii Pacific University is proud to be expanding fitness offerings for students, staff and faculty. Whether it is having free access to a gym or taking a fitness class in between classes, the Campus Recreation program will keep improving options to engage as many people to enjoy these health benefits.
Hawaii Loa Fitness Center
HPU currently offers a fitness center on the Hawaii Loa Campus (underneath the dining commons). This fitness center is free and accessible to all students, faculty and staff with a valid HPU ID card. With the entry card scanning system, University affiliates can utilize the gym 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, just by swiping their card outside the door. The fitness center offers almost everything the general student would need to get in a good workout, including: eliptical machines, treadmills, free weights, medicine balls, and a variety of options for those seeking advanced lifting and training.
Recreational Sports Equipment
The Hawaii Loa Fitness Center also has equipment available for use. Located directly in front of the restroom, students can find an array of sports items that can be borrowed and returned the same day. To encourage more use of this equipment and the courts, HPU is instilling an honor policy, in hopes that the equipment can be used and returned in a timely fashion, for others to enjoy as well. For questions or comments about the equipment please contact Campus Recreation at 544-9370.
Zumba Classes - Free
Funded by the Student Activity Fee, these free classes allow all HPU students to experience Zumba, the latin-inspired fitness program that puts a fun twist on working out. No registration is necessary, but be sure to bring an HPU ID to participate. Classes are intended for students, however staff and faculty are encouraged to join if space is available. For more information please call 544-9370 or email email@example.com.
Hip Hop Dance Classes
Classes are held Monday evenings in Warmer Auditorium, on the PH Floor of the LB Building (1060 Bishop). No reservations or fees are needed, however there is limited space each week, so be sure to arrive early to get a spot.
Beginning Hip Hop
Beginning Hip Hop is the foundation of all hip hop. This class will be focused learning to control and move your body to groove with the beat. Every dancer should start their journey into dance with beginning Hip Hop to learn the basic moves and grooves, which will help improve your technique and benefit you throughout your dance career. Even Hip Hop dancers with experience are encouraged to continue to train and practice beginning Hip Hop to improve their basic skills.
Advanced Hip HopAdvanced Hip Hop is generally taught at a much faster pace as you should already be familiar with the basic moves, musicality, and have good body control. In this class you will learn longer and faster pieces in less time with more advanced timing. The class will experiment with different styles of Hip Hop and students are encouraged to push eachother to grow as dancers in this class. All are invited to participate in advanced class and it will be taught at a pace for the majority of the class to catch on.
