Where can I work out while the Gregory Gym weight room is closed for renovation?
For a limited time, cardio equipment will be available for use in GRE AerobicsNorth (2.106 - across from the weight room). For a more expansive workout, you may access Bellmont 348 or the Recreational Sports Center (RSC). Both will maintain regular operating hours. A variety of exercise equipment is also available outdoors at Caven Lacrosse and Sports Center at Clark Field.
Will TeXercise classes be affected by the availability of cardio equipment in GRE Aerobics North?
Yes. Some TeXercise classes will be relocated to the RSC. The TeXercise schedule will reflect those changes.
What brand of equipment will be in the renovated weight room?
Details on the new equipment will be available soon. Watch for updates on this page.
What will you do with the old equipment?
Some of the equipment will be relocated to other RecSports facilities while the more outdated equipment will be used as trade-in credit for the new equipment.
What do you mean by expanded hours in the weight room?
The GRE weight room will be open the same hours as the building. Traditionally, the GRE weight room has been reserved Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00am until 12:05pm for KHE classes. Effective Fall of 2013, these classes will move to the RSC weight room.
