New Training & Fitness Facilities Coming to CSULB
Physical Education Room 88
Over the course of the last season, Sports, Athletics, and Recreation (SAR), and the CSULB Kinesiology Department went through heavy renovations with Physical Education Room 88 (PE-88), which houses fitness equipment for students enrolled in fitness activities, sports teams, and other related activities. PE-88 is the home of Beach Crew’s indoor rowing equipment (ERGS!). Major maintenance was completed this summer to insure their optimal use this next season. The coaching staff is looking forward to using this facility more often. By bringing more of the land-workouts onto the campus, this will better accommodate athletes with early classes.
Student Recreation & Wellness Center
CSULB Associated Students (ASI) broke ground this last academic year on a new 125,000 square foot fitness facility. The Student Recreation & Wellness Center (SRWC) will offer fitness programs, aerobic classes, rock climbing walls and 8 basketball, volleyball and badminton courts total. The center will serve as a place for students to exercise, study, hang out and provide student opportunities for work and internships.
The facility will be constructed on the old site of parking lot 11, next to the “new” parking structure on Palo Verde Ave. There will also be an additional parking structure built. The Center is scheduled to open in 2010.
