Fitness Center

The Fitness Center is one of the most popular places on campus!  With roughly 80% of our campus population passing through our doors at some point during the year, maybe it's time you check out what we have to offer!  We have something for all participants at all levels of fitness.  Whether you are looking to begin a fitness program, participate in one of our group exercise class, or getting a grip on relaxing with a go on our climbing wall (pun intended!), the Fitness Center can help you reach that goal!
