University gyms and college recreational centers play an integral role in providing students with the opportunity to initiate or maintain lifestyles of health and wellness. They allow students to mitigate the mental, emotional, and physical pressures of everyday college life, aiding them in reaching their greatest potential both inside and outside of the classroom.

In today’s day in age, a university’s recreation center can prove to be just as, if not more important of a recruiting tool than academic facilities or dormitories, and big-box fitness center type amenities have become expected from potential students and faculty alike. Students and faculty count on there being a diverse selection of fitness equipment to choose from, that there is enough equipment so they don’t need to wait for an exercise machine, and for equipment to be up-to-date, in great condition, and of course, hygienic.

Advanced Exercise’s college recreation fitness design consultants understand the current university fitness climate and just how essential the fitness center is in recruiting new students and keeping current ones healthy, active, productive, and content. We are fully committed to assisting your university in selecting the perfect gym equipment for your students, designing a fitness center layout blueprint that is most conducive to your space, and working with you to provide the best possible recreational experience within your budget. We can even accommodate you by devising a long-term strategy to revise your fitness space in phases to better meet budget requirements!

Colorado College

Colorado Springs, Colorado

From competitive athletes to thrill-seeking skiers to laid-back hikers, Colorado College students run the recreational spectrum. We really wanted to make sure that we developed a fitness facility that catered to such a diverse group of students and faculty members. The main goal was to create a space that could easily and successfully cater to a large number of users at one time. In order to get the most out of this college recreation center, we incorporated a large variety of machines and multiple in each category to ensure the fitness center could handle the peak times of day. Colorado College decided to purchase the highest quality Life Fitness Discover SE cardio and Hammer Strength HD Elite Racks so they would have the reassurance their facility would withstand the heavy use they were anticipating.


We are very happy with the quality of the equipment we have purchased as well as the personalized customer service that comes with it. All of our equipment has been very reliable and has stood up well to the demands of a college wellness center.
