Above the cardio room, a classroom and rehabilitation facility were added, providing state-of-the-art equipment and opportunities for hands-on experience for Athletic Training and Health Fitness Management majors.

The Varsity Weight Room, restricted to solely student-athletes and athletic staff, will include a dynamic fitness area complete with 12 Olympic racks, free weights, fitness equipment, air bikes and a 13-yard turf.
