Slated to open for spring semester 2016, the new recreation center is well underway. Large windows allow natural light to flood the balcony and provide great views of the athletic fields. Two wide stairwells lead from the ground floor to the balcony, and the open nature of the fitness center make for a spacious workout environment.
According to Eastern’s athletics website, “The expansion enlarges the fitness center from 1,300 square feet to 8,200 square feet. The lower level features a welcome desk, weight racks, free weights, machines and a large turf area for sport specific exercises and a batting cage. The upstairs is primarily a cardio area with treadmills, stationary bikes, stair machines and rowing machines.”
The former fitness center will be converted into office space.
