Intramurals, Recreation & Fitness

It’s not just for Athletes Anymore!

Work hard – Play Hard. Both are important to your lifelong success and happiness.

At Mount Ida we have lots of great ways for you to maintain your health through fun and fitness and to fill your free time. From classes in yoga and Zumba to Salsa dancing and lots of intramural sports, you’ll find ways to connect, manage stress and form friendships.

Fitness classes

If you’re looking to take a break from studying or release a little stress, try out one of Mount Ida’s fitness classes. Stretch and breathe with some yoga; dance and shake to some Zumba beats; or simply sweat a bit with some aerobics. Whatever you choose, you’re bound to feel refreshed and fit. Student admission is free, but be sure to register prior as classes fill up fast.

No experience is necessary so come – and bring a friend.

Intramural sports

If you’re interested in getting some exercise—as well as a little friendly competition—Mount Ida’s Athletics Department invites you to join our intramural sports teams. Whether you’ve played a sport before or would like to try it out for the first time, we welcome you to be part of our teams. Get fit, make some new friends and have a lot of fun.

Mount Ida fields co-ed intramural teams in volleyball, indoor soccer and floor hockey, as well as a men’s basketball league. All Mount Ida students are invited to join our intramural teams free of charge.

Health – Fitness – Fun – It’s all here for you.
