GI Joe Beach Bootcamp is designed to help students lose weight, tone bodies, build endurance and connect with others interested in their health. Preregistration is not required and all fitness levels are welcome. Participants are asked to bring a towel and a bottle of water.

The Free Fitness Weekends are scheduled for February 19-21, March 18-20, and April 15-17.
