Each summer the SRWC undergoes regularly scheduled maintenence to keep the building as new as it was when it first opened. Currently, the spa in the aquatics area is undergoing some upkeep and it should be back online the second week of July. For all other updates, please visit for all hours and maintenence changes.

The SRWC offers free assessments and orientations to students and members. These two separate, one-on-one assessments and orientations are conducted by certified personal trainers and are scheduled at the SRWC fitness desk.

In the assessment, the trainer goes over your health history and physical activity lifestyle. The trainer takes all your measurements and performs a series of quick tests. Tests include cardiovascular endurance, strength endurance and flexibility. After the tests, the trainer categorizes you based on of the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) standards. The purpose of this gathered information is for your reference and for the trainer. The trainer learns more about your body and the way you function; it allows the trainer to get an idea of how to best train you in the future.

Furthermore, this is a time for you to briefly get an understanding of your current health and physical condition. You and your trainer will discuss your fitness goals and your previous experience in physical activity. To conclude your assessment, the trainer will customize an individualistic training routine based on the information that was gathered in the assessment, which includes your fitness goals.

After the assessment, you can schedule your orientation with the trainer, where the trainer will reference your tailored workout routine from the assessment. The orientation is the client’s opportunity to learn new exercises, fix exercise form or ask any other questions that may have to do with fitness. If the client is satisfied with the way the trainer works with them, then the client can purchase personal training packages at reasonable rates.

There are many fun and free opportunities provided at the SRWC, and assessments and orientations are only a few of them. Next time you have a break between classes, come by the SRWC front desk and ask for an assessment and orientation. We have great trainers waiting to help you achieve your goals and be the best version of you that you want to be!
