During a large part of the pandemic, the fitness center was closed or had limited hours. Since National University expanded hours in September, it has been more popular than ever.
Students can now enjoy the recently renovated and state-of-the-art fitness center every day from 6 a.m. to midnight.
The fitness center renovations, completed in November 2020, features the addition of state-of-the-art equipment, a spin room and stretching room. Also included in the renovation are updated bathrooms with private showers and a spacious locker room.
Some of the new equipment includes cardio machines integrated with a number of apps such as Netflix, Spotify, Facebook and Instagram. The machines also allow users to access trainer expertise digitally and assign workouts inside and outside of the fitness center. A full library of instructional exercise videos, programmed workouts and virtual workout locations are available as well.
To ensure state health guidelines are being met, the fitness center is supervised by two student workers. Students are also required to fill out a COVID screener, and sign-in and out. Additionally, a face covering must be worn at all times and equipment wiped down before and after use.
“The fitness center is an important part of campus that helps foster both wellness and community,” said NUHS President Joseph P.D. Stiefel, MS, EdD, DC. “We welcome students, staff and faculty to take advantage of all the amenities it offers.”
