New, Temporary Weight & Fitness Room

All strength and conditioning equipment has been temporarily relocated to courts 1 and 2.

With the expansion/renovation in full swing, one of the major changes was moving the Weight & Fitness Room from its original location onto courts 1 and 2.  The move included flooring and equipment for areas including: cardio, free-weight, pin select, modular units, abs and other miscellaneous pieces.  Now that the 7-day transition is complete, we would like to send out a special thank you to all of the help we received from our student staff members!  Without all of their hard work and dedication to Rec Sports, this project would have never moved so smoothly and efficiently.



What to expect in the weight room expansion:  Our Weight and Fitness Room has been overcrowded for many years. As part of the Rec Center expansion and renovation project, we are addressing the issues of lack of space and overcrowding in the Weight and Fitness Room.  The room is currently 14,500 square feet and after the expansion it will be more than 32,000 square feet! The room will include a 10,500 square foot free weight area, almost double the amount of cardio equipment, an indoor turf area for various activities. There will also be a personal training suite, and both women’s and men’s restrooms. Although our current situation is not optimal, some exciting things are about to happen in your Student Recreation Center and we are thrilled to be able to expand and improve our facilities for the Texas A&M community!
