Best Gym: Fike

As the end of February rolls around, it may be time to check in on those New Year’s resolutions to hit the gym. Nowhere is it better to get back on track than Fike Recreation center. In the center of campus, Fike offers amenities that accommodate all your fitness needs. With an indoor running track, a bounty of cardio machines, a lap pool and group fitness spaces, Fike truly has something for everyone.

For Kayla Maguire, a sophomore management major, it is the diversity of options at Fike that make it her go-to gym. 

“I love the fact that I can swim and get a weight workout at the same place,” said Maguire. “I teach group fitness classes, specifically cycling, at Fike and love the atmosphere there!” 

The design of Fike makes it extremely appealing. This gym features a pit area with ample weights and strength training equipment, which is always bustling with activity. On the next level, surrounding this pit, one will find treadmills, ellipticals and bikes for a different workout style. The pool area, climbing wall, group fitness studios and functional training areas are found  throughout the other spaces in Fike. 

Whether you enjoy walking on the treadmill or trying to reach a new personal record for your bench press, working out can boost your endorphins and be empowering. Go find new strength this semester at Fike!
