The Middlebury College fitness center is one of the finest of its kind in New England. Overlooking the Green Mountains with its surrounding windows, the fitness center provides a great area for the Middlebury College community to stay in shape.
The split-level facility covers 10,500 square feet, containing 40 pieces of aerobic equipment, a full 22-piece Nautilus circuit, a hammer circuit, a large functional training area and extensive free weight and dumbbell areas. The fitness center houses several elliptical trainers, treadmills and stationary bikes, stair steppers and rowers. There is also a “Jungle Gym” cable station and a flexibility/core workout area, complete with medicine and stability balls.
The free weight section is extensive, with over four tons of free weights. All of the school’s iron grip dumbbells and plates are urethane-coated and display the Middlebury Panther logo. A full kettlebell set has been recently added to the free weight section. Heavyweight equipment includes seven olympic power stations, six adjustable husker racks, three adjustable squat racks and four leg press machines. The hammer strength room includes a dozen pieces of hammer equipment including two leg presses, a jammer machine and a Vertimax trainer. There is also a Power Systems functional trainer tower system which includes four rope stations, two pull up stations and four TRX training attachments.
For the beginner or the advanced fitness enthusiast, the Middlebury College fitness center has something to offer for everyone.
