The TWU Fitness Center is conveniently located on the second floor between the Student Life Office and the Counseling Center. TWU students can make use of the Fitness Center during the breadth of hours the building is open by swiping their ID card on the wall mounted card access reader at the entrance. Equipped with cardio and weight machines, it provides students, faculty and staff with a place to keep in shape as well as work off some of the stress.

Additionally, a DVD player along with a range of exercise DVDs are available for check-out as individuals and/or small groups explore the possibilities of exercising with a recorded program.  Another idea in motion for this coming year is "Commit2Fit".  It is a self-inspired/monitored workout program that will be coordinated with Student Life.  Find out more details at our office in Suite #2300.

Opportunities are plentiful for a well-balanced workout in a number of different areas, and the convenience to drop in between classes is something you cannot pass up!
