Fitness and Recreation

Whether it's working out in one of our fitness centers, joining a group class or hitting the nearby trails for a hike, you're never short of options for staying active, having fun and keeping fit. 

We’re all athletes

No matter your level of fitness, we'll help you get in shape and perform at your best in our fitness centers across our 3 campuses — from exercising your body through powerlifting programs and Spinning® classes, to sharpening your mind through yoga sessions and recreation opportunities.

When you're not hitting the gym, head outside and serve up a game on our tennis and volleyball courts, pass the ball on our outdoor basketball courts and athletics fields, and if you’re on the Mount Carmel Campus, simply cross the street and embrace the miles of hiking trails and beautiful seasonal views at Sleeping Giant State Park.
