Get involved through the Campus Recreation Center
Tierra Mauney– Multimedia Journalist
One of the many services that Tarleton has to offer its students is accessibility to the Campus Recreation Center.
Campus Recreation is more than just a gym. Students can go to work out classes, join an intramural sports team or join a sports club.
“I love intramural and club sports,” Garthon Heath, Graduate Assistant for Facilities, said. “With intramural sports you get a lot of freshmen. When it comes to clubs, it’s more so of people that have been here awhile and are just looking for other things to do besides intramural sports.”
The intramural sports currently available are flag football, volleyball, sand volleyball, basketball, softball and soccer.
Sports clubs currently available are Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse, Power-lifting, Rugby, Women’s Volleyball, Shotgun Sports, Mixed Martial Arts, Bass Club, Men’s and Women’s Soccer and Tennis.
The Recreation Center also has a rock-climbing wall, a wide variety of unique classes including Pilates and cycling and access to a personal training program with certified trainers.
The goal of the Recreation Center is to allow students opportunities to engage in activities and programs to promote a healthy, active lifestyle and social interaction.
Heath says it is important for students to get involved with the Recreation Center for “the experience and getting to know people.”
With the facility being open seven days a week, many students see the Campus Recreation Center as the perfect way to relieve stress and take a break from schoolwork.
