Weight/Fitness Room Complete
On Friday, June 29, the Belmont Abbey coaches and staff removed the weight equipment from the old weight room down to the lower gym during Phase I of the program.
The second and final phase took place today when more weight equipment was delivered into the new weight room. Thanks to a generous donor, Belmont Abbey College received 14 spin bikes, four treadmills (giving us six total), two stationery bikes, three elliptical (giving us four total), a cable pulley station with a low row, pre-weighted barbells, a hip abductor/adductor machine, leg press, leg curl, leg extension, lat pulldown, ab machines, shoulder press, chest press, a complete set of dumbbells (max of 65 pounds) with rack, a smith machine, a bicep/tricep machine, several medicine balls, a 46 inch HD television, swiss balls with mats, several step aerobic benches with lifts and a back extension machine. There will be an area in front of the TV with room for P90x, tae bo, etc.
There is also a heavy bag/speed bag combination that was donated by assistant women’s soccer coach Jamie Malilong.
The facility will be open to the entire Belmont Abbey community, including all students. Times for use will be released when the fall semester nears.
