The Recreation Center itself is a 105,000 square-foot facility offering all the basics available in any health and fitness center. It is comprised of a 3-court gymnasium, four racquetball courts, aquatics center, rock climbing gym, multi-purpose rooms and a full compliment of strength and cardio equipment. But that is just the beginning!
The Fitness Program
The Fitness Program includes 45-50 regular drop-in group exercise classes (cycling, lift, yoga, ZUMBA®, TurboKick®, etc.), workshops and seminars for improving your health, as well as workout incentives. The Group Exercise and Instructional Programs are perfect for those of you who like the group environment. The group atmosphere can really help to keep you motivated and on track. Personal Training is a great way to get you started, keep you focused, or give your workout a boost. Utilize our Testing and Training programs when you need a little push or want to refocus your efforts.
The Outdoor Program
The Outdoor Program manages one of the largest collegiate climbing gyms in the country, runs a four-season rental shop and provides trips/seminars throughout southwest Idaho and beyond. Join one, if not more, of their many activities for an adventure, to learn a new skill, meet new friends and explore. This summer the Outdoor Program is offering a Bronco Venture Wilderness Orientation for incoming students. These whitewater experience trips are led by current Boise State students and offered throughout the course of the summer to provide information about university life and campus involvement opportunities to help begin your college career. There are even opportunities for you and your family to attend shorter rafting trips with other incoming students and their families! Take advantage of the over 100-plus adventure trips offered each year by purchasing a 2013-2014 season pass to the Outdoor Program.
Intramural and Club Sport Program
Of course, what is Campus Recreation without an extensive Intramural and Club Sports programs, to provide athletic competition for all skill levels? The Intramural Sports Program provides the campus community with the opportunity to participate in various sports. The aim is to do so in a fun and friendly environment. Each semester 10–12 individual and team sports are offered. They range from racquetball, tennis, badminton and golf to volleyball, basketball, flag football and dodgeball. The Club Sports Program is designed to serve the individual or groups of students who share a common competitive interest in sports. Depending on the sport, there is an opportunity for competition against local and regional opponents.
And don’t forget about our Aquatic Complex. Completed in the fall of 2010, the 17,000 square-foot complex, located at the back of the Rec Center, is a hub for water activities. Housed in the Aquatic Complex are a multi-purpose pool, recreation pool and spa. Here, there are many opportunities for lap swim, water exercise, swim lessons, water polo, kayaking instruction, relaxing and more!
REC Field and Cycle Learning Center
Beyond the doors of the Recreation Center, available facilities include a recreation field and the Cycle Learning Center. The recreation field is often utilized by Rec Sports for both Intramural and Club games. The Cycle Learning Center (CLC) is a partnership between Campus Recreation and Transportation and Parking Services. Located in the Lincoln Parking Garage, the CLC brings all things bicycle to the campus.
