Climbing Wall

Climbing to the Top

RA Michelle Callaghan '13 brought her residents to the Pride Recreation Center so they could try their hands at scaling Widener's 24-foot rock wall.

We give you a bunch of alternatives, such as group fitness classes ranging from Zumba to spinning, a variety of competitive club sports and intramural programs. 

Our Pride Recreation Center features the finest equipment from trusted names like Life Fitness, StarTrac, PreCor, and Cybex. We have something for everyone --  AMTs, ARC Trainers, treadmills, expresso bikes, rowers, spin bikes, ellipticals and helix machines. Add some lifting to your cardio with a trip to our upstairs strength training floor, which features stations for upper and lower body as well as free weights and two functional training areas. We also have a 24-foot rock wall if you want to climb to new heights. 

Catch up on all our campus recreational events and activities on our Pride Recreation Center Facebook page or the Pride Recreation Center Office on Campus Cruiser.
