New Slug Rec virtual-only membership program

As the new academic year begins, we are excited to announce a pilot program to support healthy living and physical activity for UC Santa Cruz employees.The Office of the Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor (CP/EVC) is sponsoring a one-year Slug Rec Virtual-only Membership for group exercise classes. All faculty and staff are welcome to join.

With work modalities continuing to evolve, many of you are based at home, and others have a hybrid schedule spending some days on campus and others working from home. Through the virtual membership, you can access the library of classes at any time, no matter where you are. A variety of classes and exercise formats will be available virtually, including Zumba, yoga, kickboxing, HIIT and more, and recordings of the latest Livestream classes are added to the library within 48 hours. 

The cost of this quarterly membership is being covered by the Office of the CP/EVC.  All you have to do is enter the promo code cpevcvirtual when you sign up for a membership. This document provides step-by-step instructions on how to apply the promo code and access the library. You will need to re-enter the promo code each quarter. The Group Exercise Class Schedule for fall quarter begins September 19. 

If your unit would like a more personalized program, the CP/EVC office will also support a one-time visit by an A&R staff professional to tailor a program to your unit’s fitness interests. For more information on a unit visit, contact Assistant Athletic Director for Fitness & Wellness Jim Meyer at
