Fitness Center

PoolThe Batten Fitness Center, covering a total of 5,000 square feet, offers endless opportunities for VWU community members to begin or continue their personal fitness quest. The center offers a variety of popular workout equipment from nationally recognized leaders in the fitness industry such as Matrix, Rouge, Precor, and Star Trac.

Home to our UREC Fitness Program, community members can tailor a workout that fits their skill level and calendar. Fitness classes are also offered regularly throughout each semester. A favorite is X-Fit, a high intensity, fat burning, and muscle building class geared towards all levels of fitness. Custom workout plans also available by appointment.
