Rock Climbing Wall
Located on the first floor at the north end of the center, our rock-climbing wall is one of only a few rock-climbing options in Alabama. Beginner, intermediate and advanced levels are available, but those skillful enough to reach the top will enjoy a scenic overview of activities below.
The swimming pool and Aquatic Center is located at the south end of the Wellness Center and features an exterior wall that opens to the outdoors by way of roll-up doors. The area also features a lap and vortex pool, a nearby Jacuzzi, and portable rock-climbing wall.
Multi-Purpose Basketball Courts
In the center of the facility are two open-ceiling basketball courts, each lined for various additional sports including badminton, pickle ball and volleyball.
A fully-equipped weight room features a comprehensive array of strength-training equipment including variable resistance machines, various bench presses, and dumbbell and barbell racks, along with a squat racks and Smith machines. Medicine balls, kettle bells, and Lebert Equalizer systems are also available in our Functional Fitness Area on the 2nd floor.
Cardio Equipment Area
The Wellness Center features a full complement of cardio exercise equipment including treadmills, upright and recumbent bikes, stair steppers, elliptical machines, and Virtual Ride cycles. All are equipped with a touch-screen monitor.
Two multi-purpose rooms, each with a second-floor view of the new AUM intramural fields, provide the venue for a dynamic selection of exercise classes including spinning, yoga, Pilates, zumba, bodypump and dance. An adjacent outdoor patio lounge area is the perfect spot for a post-workout rest.
An indoor track on the second level of the center hovers over the basketball courts and offers runners a scenic outdoor view for approximately half of each lap. The track measures 0.8 miles in length, with corner exercise and lounge areas on its outer perimeter.
Women and men’s locker rooms, equipped with showers and lockers, are conveniently located near the pool area for easy access. A limited number of lockers are available for rent.
