At 10,000 square feet, it offers plenty of room for students, faculty and staff to work out on gleaming new cardio equipment and weight machines. Built as an addition on the front of the Breidegam Field House, the center overlooks the HUB quad and, on the interior, windows offer a view down into the ARC.

Treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, summit climbers, stairmasters and rowers line up ready for use—30 of them in all. The Life Fitness equipment is all-new and offers special features including plugs for an iPod or headphones to access one of six 55-inch televisions.

In addition to the cardio equipment, a full line of Life Fitness Selectorized strength equipment covers every muscle group. There also is a large free-weight area as well as an area dedicated to abdominal/core workouts.

And three TRX suspension systems are located on one wall, offering exercises that use one’s body weight for resistance.

The former fitness center, now renamed the performance center, contains heavy weights, squat racks and Olympic platforms, which can be used to complement the machines in the fitness center. Between the two workout spaces, Moravian boasts more than 13,000 square feet of space for its student athletes and those who simply want to stay in shape.
