  • 1st Floor Weight Room & 4th Floor South Refresh

    March 14, 2018


    We are moving forward with another one of the weight room/4th floor refresh phases this week, which will continue through spring break. Consolidating some machines to set up a true circuit on the 4th floor and eliminating some multiple machines, while eliminating some of the oldest machines in the 1st floor weight room and adding a new multi-jungle.

    This is the next phase of a prolonged weight room/4th floor south refresh; unfortunately, budget constraints affect this project, so the changes will take place over the next few years. Please know that we spent considerable time researching our weight room and strength training equipment throughout the IMA Building as a whole. Our goal is to improve the flow and usage of all strength training areas, with an eye towards making it more inclusive to encourage users of all levels.
