To further enhance campus life and students’ co-curricular experience, The University of Tampa is building a new fitness center in the heart of the UT campus. The building will feature high ceilings, open rooms and
liberal use of glass to allow for sunlight and a connection to the
outdoors. The open floor plan is intended to enhance visibility, foster
social interaction and build community.
The fitness center will be a centrally located, one-stop shop for all
exercise programs, personal training and evaluation, wellness and
nutrition programs, intramurals, recreation activities, club sports and
some exercise related laboratory and research activities.
Specifically, the center will feature six group exercise rooms, which
includes an indoor cycling room. Two small fitness assessment rooms have been
incorporated in the floor plan, as well as a “flexible” classroom to
allow for educational and training functions. A large number of Precor cardio machines (treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical and adaptive motion trainers) as well as free weights, plate loaded and selectorized machines will be available. The center will also
include offices for Campus Recreation and related staff, as well as
