Eastern University Fitness
In February 2016, the new Fitness Center opened at Eastern University. The new, two story 8,200 square foot fitness center was designed by Derck & Edson and is open to all students, faculty and staff.
The first floor of the facility features Hammer Strength weight training equipment and includes 8 olympic platforms with drop zones, 4 dumbbell racks with customized dumbbells and plates and 16 weight machines for upper and lower body workouts. There is also 94 feet of indoor turf and a stretching area. The Life Fitness cardio equipment is positioned on the second floor with picturesque views of campus from 9 treadmills, 6 ellipticals, 2 stairclimbers, 4 rowing machines, 6 spin bikes with foot clamps, and 5 stationary bikes. A welcome desk with storage cubicles, 3 flat screen televisions and a sound system complete the experience.
The fitness center also houses athletic department offices and a conference room.
