The University of Western States Fitness Center is located in the Southwest
corner of the Gym. The center consists of an aerobic suite and separate
strength building room. The aerobic suite contains an elliptical machine and
a treadmill, along with a television. The strength training room houses a
number of weight systems, cable based training, and plenty of free space for
equipment clearance. This room also has soft rubberized flooring. Fans and
music complete this space.
Restrooms and the bookstore are nearby, and the Fitness Center is close to
the Gym where basketball, ping-pong, foosball, and other student activities
occur. Near the gym outdoors is a large field where volleyball, Frisbee,
soccer, and other outdoor events are held.
The UWS Fitness Center was upgraded and improved in 2008, thanks to a
generation donation from the Board of Directors. New equipment was purchased
and installed at that time. Dr. Joseph Brimhall, President, also donated
equipment to finish the fitness offerings.
