Upenn Recreation

New Member Orientation

Penn Recreation has a large variety of exercise equipment – from the standard treadmill and elliptical to the dynamic Synergy 360 unit. For newcomers to our facilities, this can be confusing and overwhelming.

Fear not! Penn Recreation offers New Member Orientations for new or current patrons who want an in-depth orientation to everything our facility has to offer. New Member Orientations are free for all members of Penn Recreation. During the orientation, patrons will receive a full facility tour as well as instruction on the proper use of our cardiovascular and strength equipment. Orientations are 45-60 minutes in length and exercise clothing is recommended.


Please note: This service has been temporarily suspended due to staffing constraints. Basic tours of the facility are still available between 9 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday.

Contact us to register for your free equipment orientation at the Pottruck Health & Fitness Center. Please note, only Pottruck Members are eligible to register. For a basic tour of the Pottruck Health and Fitness Center, please stop by Membership Services.

Equipment orientations are also available at the Fox Fitness Center. Please contact us to schedule your appointment. For a basic tour of the Fox Fitness Center at 215-573-9027 or stop by the Fox Fitness Center Lobby to walk through with a staff member.
