Outside Exercise & Fitness

If you’re looking to get in a workout, but want to use some equipment, the new Fitness Plaza is open! Located between TRECS & SAC, a series of tents provide shade for use of cardio machines and weights! Come check it out!

You will also have access to the RecSports Turf Field next to TREC. Equipped with brand new Field Turf, the fields are an easily accessible recreational area open to sports and informal recreation activities.
