The Demorest campus Fitness Center is located in the Student Commons! Make walking to the fitness center a part of your warm up!
We are excited to be in the Student Commons, which is complete with a rock-climbing wall. Please see the schedule below for fitness center hours and available courses. If you would like a class time or type you don’t see, please suggest it, and we will do our best to accommodate you. Class design, time of class, and instructors are subject to change. All instructors have been certified in group instruction and CPR. In addition, the staff of the FC can now offer the Piedmont Community the following classes including, but not limited to: HIIT, Yoga, Abs, and Cardio. We are able to expand the fitness class schedule to include morning, lunch, and late-evening classes to offer a group experience for those who may need a break from studies or encouragement in starting a fitness program.
Scanning in with the Piedmont App is required for admittance to the Fitness Center at ALL TIMES! Thank you for your cooperation.
