Our first “Lunchtime Conversations – Workout Spaces” was a huge success. We would like to thank John Seckel, Associate Director of the Campus Center for his excellent tour of this impressive facility. Admission is free with student, staff or faculty ID.
The Campus Center has the following open hours:
Sunday: 11 a.m.-Midnight
Monday-Friday: 7 a.m.-Midnight

the Wellness Room
This space features an aerobic dance floor. Aerobic classes, yoga and wellness classes are held here (click here for schedule of classes).
The Wellness room is open for anyone to use freely when the fitness classes are not in session.
As you can see, a variety of workout equipment is offered for use in the Wellness Room. Video equipment and workout videos such as “Insanity” and “P90X” are available for viewing in this area, too.
The Wellness Room is also the place to find the recumbent bicycle and ab glider.

Let’s not forget the Gym!
The gym has three tracks: inside track-18 laps = 1 mile
middle track-17.5 laps = 1 mile
outer track-17 laps = 1 mile.
The following equipment can be checked out with your ID card from the Recreation Desk: volleyballs, soccer balls, medicine balls, jump ropes, yoga mats, pickle ball set, spike ball game and workout videos.
There have been some questions about using or not using SuperTracker. Although SuperTracker is an excellent program with many great features, if you have a system in place that you were previously using to track your personal goals, please feel free to continue to use that method. Just check off the ovals on your “Point Tracker” for the days that you have used either the SuperTracker or your own goal tracking system.
