U of G Students! 

You already have an Athletics Base Membership if you are a registered full or part-time undergraduate student or a full-time graduate student of the University of Guelph (you have paid your Athletics Base Membership within your academic registration fees). 

You have the option to purchase the NRG Pass OR the new NRG PLUS Pass as a Membership Add-on (additional fees apply). The original NRG Pass includes access to the Fitness Centre and 'regular' NRG classes (+NRG PLUS classes not included). The new NRG PLUS Pass includes access to the Fitness Centre + preferred access to all NRG Classes, plus unique Group Fitness & Personal Training classes for NRG PLUS Pass members only.  

What does Preferred Access mean?  NRG PLUS users will enter regular NRG classes first and spots will be reserved even for classes that have a limited number of participants (TRX®/cycle). *Reserved spots will be held until class start time, then spots will open to ALL NRG Pass users. 

Also included are unique Group Fitness & Personal Training classes such as: Circuits N’ Mobility, Cycle Barre, Cycle Roll, Group Functional Circuit, TRX® Bootcamp & TRX® Pilates that are exclusive to NRG PLUS Pass users only.

Whether you purchase your pass online or in-person, you must pick up your NRG PLUS sticker at Client Services as you will be required to show this sticker prior to accessing classes.  With the purchase of the NRG PLUS Pass, receive a Gryphon towel by visiting the Fitness Centre main desk.
