What do I need to get into Fitness and Recreation?
You MUST HAVE a current college-issued (MassArt, MCPHS, or WIT) ID in order to gain admittance to the fitness center. There are ZERO exceptions to the ID policy. During the winter months, you are required to change into a second pair of (clean) shoes.
I’ve heard Fitness and Recreation is open to MCPHS, Massachusetts College of Art and Design & Wentworth students, is that true?
Yes, Fitness and Recreation is open to the MCPHS, Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Wentworth communities (we even let faculty and staff members in too).
Do you have lockers available?
We have storage cubbies where you may keep your belongings while you work out. In addition to the storage cubbies, there are a limited number of lockers available in each locker room. These lockers are for DAY USE ONLY!
I’ve heard it is impossible to get on equipment because it is so busy. Why is this?
While it is true that Fitness and Recreation is a busy place, there are always times when equipment is available. During peak hours (between 4 - 9pm) you may have to wait to use a piece of cardio equipment. However, there are time limits so that we can allow more individuals to utilize the equipment during peak times. If it is possible, try adjusting your workout time to non-peak hours.
Do you have personal trainers?
Stop by the Fitness and Recreation front desk to ask about the Personal Training services that are available! Single sessions and packages are available!
Are there places where can I shower?
Shower facilities are available in the men’s and women’s locker rooms located inside Fitness and Recreation. All showers are wheelchair accessible, and towel service is available.
Do you allow guests?
Due to space constraints and the popularity of Fitness and Recreation, guests are not allowed.
Do I have to pay to take Group Exercise classes?
All Group Exercise classes are free, but you will need your college-issued ID!
I forgot my shampoo, and I need to shower before class.
Don’t worry, Fitness and Recreation offers shampoo and body wash for emergencies just like this. We even have a hair dryer and hair elastics should you need one while running on the treadmill.
