The Bern Schwartz Fitness and Athletic Center

The newly renovated Bern Schwartz Fitness and Athletic Center has quickly become the place to be since reopening in September 2010. The new 11,500 sq. ft. fitness center boasts over 50 pieces of cardio equipment, 15 selectorized weight machines and a multi-purpose room housing everything from PE Indoor cycling to Zumba Fitness! The fitness center has over 100 different workout options, including drop in classes, free weights, indoor cycling bicycles, and cardiovascular and strength training machines.

The building hosts two-courts in the Class of 1958 Gymnasium, an eight lane pool, a fitness center with varsity weight training area, an athletic training room, locker rooms, a conference smart room and the Department of Athletics & Physical Education offices. The fitness center is located on the second floor directly up the circular staircase as you enter the Bern Schwartz Fitness and Athletic Center.

The outdoor athletics and recreation facilities include two varsity athletics playing fields, seven tennis courts and two fields for recreational and club sport usage. The Shillingford and Applebee Fields are home to the College's field hockey, soccer and lacrosse programs. In the fall of 2011 the College will complete construction on Applebee, converting it from natural grass to a synthetic field.
