Powered by Wellbeats, Fitness on Demand delivers over 500 virtual fitness classes ranging from cycling to yoga, as well as challenges and fitness assessments. There is a class for any skill level.

You can utilize the Fitness on Demand System anytime there are not group fitness classes or reservations in the Activity Room.  

Virtual group fitness class at the Morris Recreation Center.

How to use the Fitness on Demand system

  • The touchscreen monitor is located at the front right corner of the MRC Activity Room.
  • Start by pressing the “On” button on the panel underneath the Wellbeats monitor. This will turn on the projector. Please refrain from pressing either input button below this as this can turn off the video feed.
  • The projector screen will already be down and the feed from the monitor should appear on the screen. Browse through the hundreds of fitness class options, participate in a month-long challenge, or try out a Fit Test.
  • All of the electronics are pre-set so please refrain from pressing the volume up or down buttons below the monitor.
  • You can use the filter button on the Wellbeats main page to find a class that perfectly fits you.
  • We ask that when you are done with your workout, please press the “Off” button located under the monitor twice to shut down the projector.
  • If you are in need of assistance please ask a building supervisor.
