ZOOM Your Way To Fitness
Sports & Fitness Hosts Live Stream Fitness Classes
By Sheryl E. Taylor
Take a break and get fit with live stream fitness classes — from pilates to kickboxing to Zumba to yoga and more. All activities, except online sports, will be hosted on Zoom at uhd.zoom.us/my/stayfit.
Sports & Fitness has implemented some security measures to prevent hacking incidents, including encouraging users to download necessary updates to their Zoom client. As an added measure, there is a Zoom waiting lobby for the classes. In addition, users will not be able to chat during the class or change their name. If misconduct is observed during the sessions, users may be removed from the class.
The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) – the second-largest university in Houston – has served the educational needs of the nation’s fourth-largest city since 1974.
As one of four distinct public universities in the University of Houston System, UHD is a comprehensive four-year university led by President Loren J. Blanchard. Annually, UHD educates more than 15,000 students; boasts more than 61,000 alumni and offers 45 bachelor’s, nine master’s degree programs and 16 fully online programs within five colleges (Marilyn Davies College of Business; Humanities & Social Sciences; Public Service; Sciences & Technology; and University College).
For the fourth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranks UHD among universities across the nation for Best Online Criminal Justice Programs (No. 27 and No. 15 for Veterans) and Best Online Bachelor’s Programs.
UHD has the most affordable tuition among four-year universities in Houston and one of the lowest in Texas. U.S. News ranked the University among Top Performers on Social Mobility and awarded UHD a No. 1 ranking as the most diverse institution of higher education in the southern region of the U.S. The University is noted nationally as a Hispanic-Serving Institution, Minority-Serving Institution and Military Friendly School.
