The best workout in the state

Rec Center

The Warrior Recreation Center opened in April 2014.

It is the beginning of March – the time when people start to break their New Year’s resolutions. If you were dieting, you are back to pizza and fries. If you were trying to exercise, your only exercise now is the walk between classes.

Fortunately, there is still a way to keep at least one of your resolutions in a friendly and convenient way, and that is with the Warrior Recreation Center (WRC). If you want to be one of the 9 percent of people who keep their New Year’s resolutions, you should use the WRC.

What the WRC offers

Since its opening in 2014, the WRC has been heralded as one of the best recreation centers in the state, according to their website.

The services and classes it offers are high in quality and number. If you are looking for simple cardio training, there are over 120 machines that you can work out with. If you are looking for strength training, dumbbells are available, along with a variety of weights.

If you have passed by the WRC on your way to Campus Center, you may have seen two basketball courts on the bottom level. Though you might not have noticed it, there is also a volleyball court available for use.

The WRC is open seven days a week, between 5:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. on weekdays, and from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekends. The hours of operation offer you flexibility in choosing when to exercise.

The benefits of working out

Being able to exercise can provide many benefits to your life, such as adhering to a schedule, better recovery time from mental and physical stress and better overall health. These alone are great things to keep in mind when you want to work out.

With the WRC's location on campus, it is easily accessible and allows you to enjoy these benefits without needing to travel away from school.   

As a frequent user of the WRC, and as someone who has lost 30 pounds from working out there, I can attest to its benefits. The WRC is one of the best places to work out in the state, and you all should use it too.
