The Fitness Center offers 19 pieces of cardio equipment including an Arc Trainer, Run Free Elliptical, Stairmaster, Upper Body Exerciser, ellipticals, a rowing machine, stationary bicycles, and treadmills. The Fitness Center has 30 machine weights targeting upper and lower body and core. There is also a free weight area which includes benches, dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, and Olympic racks.
