Swimming Pool

We strive to provide a variety of activities to engage our members and promote a healthy lifestyle. Aquatics is a healthy activity that can benefit the body and the mind. By engaging in an aquatics workout, your body develops general strength, cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Swimming is a great alternative to high-impact exercises that can be stressful on your joints. If you're looking for a more rigorous aquatic work out, swim against the current of the natatorium's vortex feature. Visit the aquatics page for information on party reservations, lifeguard certification and more.

Group Fitness Studio

Our comprehensive and customized approach helps you make healthy decisions to benefit you now and long into the future. With classes including yoga, cycling, kickboxing, and services including personal training with wellness assessment, the Recreation and Wellness Center is the place to achieve your goals for total body fitness. Your health is more than the physical condition of your body. When one area gets out of balance, it usually affects the other aspects of your life. Our wellness services are created to help you assess your current fitness and wellness level and achieve a healthy, well-balanced life. Visit the group fitness page for current schedules.

Gymnasium & Racquetball Court

Our gymnasium houses three full-size basketball courts with more than enough space for you to enjoy a game of volleyball or badminton while other students shoot hoops. The courts are prioritized for informal recreation and intramural sports, so there's always an area free. Self-contained racquetball courts are available adjacent to the gym floor and reservations may be made one day in advance. Review our facilities policies for more information.

Indoor Walking Track, Game Room & Lounge

Recreation and Wellness Center houses a multilane, indoor walking track. Overlooking the gymnasium, the track is surrounded by cardio equipment and stretching areas. Once you've worked up a sweat, cool off by enjoying our lounge and game room. A big screen television and game tables are provided so friends can meet up after a workout or just for fun. Review our facilities policies for more information.
