Graduate and professional students are automatically enrolled as members of CWRU’s One to One Fitness center at the discounted rate of $29+tax/month (even less for spring semester if you are able to use it over summer!). The membership fee is billed in a lump sum each semester.

This includes over 80 group exercise classes, lockers, towels, saunas, 28,000 sq. ft. of exercise equipment, babysitting, and more.

If you DO NOT want to be a member of One to One Fitness Center, simply opt out of the membership in SIS and/or follow the instructions here.

Degree-seeking, graduate or professional students who are not also employees of the university are eligible for the discounted membership.

If you were a One to One Fitness member via the Graduate & Professional wellness initiative the previous semester, there is nothing more you need to do! Continue to use your same One to One Fitness Center membership card and there is no additional paperwork required.

If you are new to One to One Fitness via this initiative or you were not a member the previous semester, simply come to the front desk at One to One Fitness Center with your CWRU ID. You will complete two short forms on your first visit. Within 24 business hours you will have a One to One Fitness membership card ready for you at the front desk. Use that card for access throughout the semester.

All graduate and professional students can try the facility for (1) one free visit. If you attend more than one time in the semester (even if before the end of the drop/add period), you are no longer able to opt out of the initiative for that semester.

Enrollment is for the entire semester. Dues are not prorated based on usage. We have many fitness and wellness professionals here to help you find motivation and/or time in your schedule to attend regularly!

The deadline to waive the fee is the end of the drop/add period. These dates can be found on the University Registrar website.

After this date, you are enrolled in the membership. If you have an extenuating circumstance (such as living out of state) and did not opt out of the membership fee before the drop/add period, email your name, student ID and brief reason for appeal to onetoone@case.edu.
