We are excited to offer an innovative workout space that accommodates up to 14 users at a time. The Fitness Zone is open to students, faculty, and staff members. Equipment includes a pendulum, a two-person accessible chest press, a two-person combo lateral pull and vertical press, a rower, a four-person leg press, and an elliptical. These machines enable users to work against their own body masses, so the outdoor workout space can be used by almost anyone, regardless of ability or fitness level.
