Equipment Orientation

If you're new to the Recreation Center or want to know which equipment will help you achieve your fitness goals, our Fitness Floor Attendants are ready to assist!  Just look for the staff in blue and ask for an equipment orientation or send an email to  to setup an appointment. You can choose from cardio machines, weight machines, or a combination of both cardio and weight machine orientations. Need to know which pieces can accommodate a special need?  We can help with that, too.  In addition, if you haven't utilized our workout buddy program and need a spotter, they are happy to step in. Just ask!
