The Martin Fitness Center, "The Rec" is named after Phi Delta Theta alumnus Wells Martin, Jr., Ohio Alpha 1942, Bond #752.
The best time to go is anytime before lunch because it is the least crowded then.
The first 2 weeks of the semester (both fall and spring) sucks and entirely way to crowded
Break a mental sweat too
When doing arm curls, notify girls walking by that you just did 1000
First week of every semester all the group fitness classes are free
Check out the climbing wall! It's free for women on Wednesday nights from 6:30-9:00 during the semesters.
Try a group fitness class with Jacky. She is fierce and fabulous!
If you're a hardcore lifter, show up after 8 or you'll burn up waiting to get in on sets.
The 50 meter pool here is great and usually not very crowded. I often have the pool to myself.
Be sure to drink plenty of water!
Whether you want to play basketball, work out, or swim, the Rec Center is the place to be. Grab a friend and hit the gym.
Take Vinyasa yoga with Holly or TRX training with Zach to get great workouts!
Go to classes with Mindy or Kelly. They are the best
The earlier in the day you go, the better. Between 5-8 in the afternoon, the place is packed
Try TRX on Sunday nights with Annie...one of the best full-hour, total body workshops at the Rec!
6:30 m-f: always a group playing some pick-up games. Come join!
If Miami is in session the only reasonable time to go is 6AM.
They don't have any bumpers or Olympic equipment, and only one real pullup bar, so CrossFitters have to improvise a bit.
