Opened in Fall 2013, this 8,000 square foot facility includes state-of-the-art fitness equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, cross trainers, upright and recumbent bikes, stairclimbers, free weights, and selectorized and plate loaded strength equipment. Additional features also include two group exercise studios, fitness assessment room, and small locker rooms.

General locker rooms (men's, women's, gender inclusive) include showers and changing areas.
Both the men's and women's
locker rooms contain half-length lockers that individuals can use with their
own personal lock (combination locks are available for purchase at the front
desk for $10.00).
They are not for overnight use. They are only to be used for the duration of your visit at the facility.
There are small digital mini-lockers for day-use in the Cassell Fitness Center free of charge, that can store personal items while you work out.
Cassell Fitness Center has two exercise studios, with a divider wall that can be raised to create one large studio to accommodate our larger group exercise classes. Cassell Studios are home to many Group Exercise classes and academic HFIT activity classes.
Interested in reserving one of the group exercise studios for your student organization? All studios must be booked in advance. Restrictions apply. Contact Olivia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fitness Assessment
Room at Cassell allows Personal Trainers to work with their clients 1 on 1 for
consultations and Fitness Assessments. Fitness Assessments will include heart
rate and blood pressure measurements, body composition analysis, cardiovascular
and muscular fitness assessments and flexibility testing. Personal Trainers
design exercise programs based on the results of these basic health and fitness
tests. Interested in a Fitness Assessment, click here.
