The Eagle Fitness Center is located near the center of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Campus, offering students, faculty, and staff a convenient place to get in a workout between classes or take a study break in the sun beside the Tine W. Davis Swimming Pool.
The 12,000-square-foot Fitness Center houses state-of-the-art strength-training equipment from FreeMotion Fitness, Life Fitness & Hammer Strength, and Iron Grip. A cardio deck on the upper level houses treadmills, elliptical machines, stationary bikes, cross trainers, and rowing machines with integrated technology features such as TVs and iPod and USB connections with Internet connectivity.
Group fitness classes are held in a 2,500-square-foot group fitness room that overlooks the swimming pool. Classes vary per semester and include yoga, cycling, core training, Les Mills BODYPUMP, BODYCOMBAT, Zumba, and Boot Camp.
Fitness equipment available for use during classes includes steps, stability balls, BOSU balls, resistance bands, and free weights, as well as 20 spinner bikes.
Students, faculty, and staff can schedule a free fitness orientation appointment with a fitness staff member who will orient you on all the strength training and cardio equipment in the facility. The orientation includes instruction on proper lifting technique on the FreeMotion machines, assistance in finding proper weights, and a data sheet with equipment settings for keeping track of future fitness progress.
Personal fitness programs are available by appointment. An Eagle Fitness Personal Trainer will develop a program based on your goals and fitness level. Those interested in our personal training program can purchase packages and have a trainer work with them every workout to further progress and develop. Training sessions are 45-60 minutes and can include Boot Camp, TRX training, yoga, and more, depending on your goals and interests.
Assessments including body fat percentage, blood pressure, sit-up test, push-up test, and flexibility can all be performed for free at the Eagle Fitness Center at any time during the semester.
Nutrition consultations are offered to all students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Eagle Fitness staff will discuss your dietary habits and needs and provide a customized nutrition plan based on daily caloric needs, including instruction on how to properly read food labels in order to make healthy food choices.
