Malia White, a junior studying therapeutic recreation, teaches high fitness.

“Working out is a huge stress reliever,” White said. “I love bringing that to other people. I love getting to be a person that can bring motivation to other people.”

High fitness classes are taught at BYU-Idaho on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

“The thing I love about high fitness is it’s super hard, but I feel like you don’t realize how hard you’re working because it’s so fun,” White said.

White teaches high fitness on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-8 p.m. A second instructor teaches Monday at 9 p.m. and Saturday at 9 a.m. All High Fitness classes take place in the John W. Hart Building Auditorium.

Madison Giles, a freshman studying elementary education said “I love to dance, it gets me active, it’s a great way to exercise in a way that I love.”

According to the high fitness website, “HIGH took Old School Aerobics and transformed it into a modern, heart-pounding, fun, and effective workout. Cardio and toning meet leg warmers with a side of air guitar.”

Students interested in attending can find more information and register ahead of time through I-Belong.
