“Street Conditioning” and AMPD Burn are two of several new JagFit classes this semester. The classes will be held virtually and will run through the end of April.
Jaguars to feel the burn with new fitness classes
By Miranda Rodriguez
The Department of Recreational Sports is hosting APMD Burn fitness classes from noon to 12:30 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday on Zoom.
Participants can improve their balance and mobility while building strong legs and core with AMPD Burn, said instructor Teresa de la Torre.
AMPD Burn combines ballet-infused movements with elements of strength training. The full-body workout is low impact and accessible to all fitness levels.
The goal of AMPD Burn is to provide a quick, fun and convenient workout for students and staff.
“We are trying to give staff and students a way to be fit and still feel comfortable in their own homes considering what is happening right now in the world,” de la Torre said.
Participants will need a fitness mat for floor exercises. Resistance bands and weights are optional.

Break a sweat with strength, conditioning classes
By Raquel Salazar-Garza
Strength and conditioning classes, which are listed as “Street Conditioning” on JagSync and JagFit’s webpage, will be held virtually 2 to 2:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays through April for students, faculty and staff.
This is a full-body low to moderate conditioning class. “Street Conditioning” is part of several new classes offered this semester.
Texas A&M University-San Antonio fitness instructor Xavier A. Vara will teach the classes. Vara recommends using a mat, weighted bar, dumbbells or other items that participants might have to optimize their workout.
“It’s necessary if you’re going to attend the class because you need that resistance when doing your workout routine,” Vara said.
Vara also mentioned possibly having classes outdoors if approved. As of now, the classes don’t have a set limit of people attending but this would change if classes are held outdoors. Jaguar Recreational Sports will announce on JagSync if it makes any changes.
