Fitness Center Club purchases equipment

The Fitness Center Club at Davis & Elkins College recently used funds from the College’s Student Assembly to purchase a range of new equipment.

The items include nine premium hanging club mats, an elite power medicine ball, a rep band 6-yard roll, a VersaBall, two PowerRopes, a Premium Revolving 20-inch straight bar and a BOSU Balance Trainer for the Robbins-Madden Fitness Center.

Joyce Nestor, Fitness Center advisor, said that in addition, approximately $4,000 of the Student Assembly funds will be used for a yearlong service agreement contract with Noritsu America Corporation, which is crucial for maintaining all of the equipment in the heavily used fitness center.

Located on the main level of Hermanson Center, the fitness center is open to the general public. Memberships are available on a monthly or yearly basis for individuals or families.

It is open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday; and 1 to 9 p.m. Sunday.
