  • 2 Expresso GO “virtual reality” upright bikes
  • 1 Jacobs ladder stairway GTL stepmill

“I am really excited for the delivery of this new cardio equipment, which wouldn’t be possible without the commitment from the administration,” said L.

The Precor treadmills and total body ellipticals include a mix of P62 models and P31 models. The P62 models feature a 10” touchscreen console with Bluetooth capability for personal headphones and apps, such as Hulu, Netflix, ESPN, VideoOnDemand, featured workouts and others, while the P31 models are outfitted with LED consoles.

The Expresso GO upright bikes have a 23.5” touchscreen console, virtual mountain biking and gaming features, a variety of spin classes and special University and team racing and competition features.

As for the remaining new equipment, the stepmill is self-powered by body weight and resistance, the climber is great for HIIT and Crossfit training and the spin cycles feature a studio console and an ANT compatible heart rate monitor.

All of the new equipment has been installed and is ready for use.

During this time, the Fitness Center will follow an updated operation schedule to align with the University’s “Keep Waynesburg Well” Plan. Open hours will be Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

Each floor of the Center will be limited to a 20-person maximum to ensure appropriate social distancing. Cardio equipment located along the balcony of the second floor is spaced 6 feet apart and will be open at all times unless a piece of equipment is being serviced. Equipment and stations on the remainder of the floor, as well as the first floor, will be used every other piece to meet social distancing requirements.

In accordance with the “Keep Waynesburg Well” Plan, all individuals are required to wear a mask at the Fitness Center with the exception, according to NCAA standards, when an individual is “actively engaged in exercise.” 

Additionally, disposable gloves will be available for use throughout the Center.
