As part of the expansive 1991 addition, Ohio Northern added fitness and free-weight rooms to the Sports Center complex.
Located adjacent to the Fieldhouse, the fitness room features state-of-the-art equipment, including Precor treadmills and ellipticals, a recumbent bicycle, several Stairmasters, and Schwinn Airdyne bicycles. Additionally, circuit weight machines and a smith press machine are available. Flat-panel televisions and expansive views of the campus make the fitness room a popular feature of the complex.
The free weight room is aptly suited for all lifters—from varsity athletes to the casual strength trainer-featuring a wide-range of equipment appropriate for multiple exercises. The room has five racks, two plate-loading rowing machines, two free-weight benches, two leg press machines, a dumbbell workout area, and a french curl bench.
Whether used to bolster athletes, hold introductory strength training courses, or provide a much-needed means of physical activity, the weight and fitness rooms enhance the Sports Center.
