The Bronco Recreation Intramural Complex (BRIC) may be the most known place to workout on campus, but it’s not the only option.
The University Housing Services Fitness Express is conveniently located on University Drive, and is free to students living in the Residence Halls, Residential Suites or the Center for Regenerative Studies.
“I love that it is super accessible, easy to use, and never crowded,” fourth-year food and nutrition student Nataly Arellano said.
Arellano now works at the BRIC, but enjoyed using the Fitness Express during her first years attending CPP.
The fitness express is open Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Although the Fitness Express is open to students who live on campus, it is also available to the campus community at a small fee.
Students can purchase a membership for $25 every quarter.
This fee can be paid at the CPP Cashiers office. Once they pay, students should take their receipt to the University Housing Services main office located at the La Cinema Center (Bldg. 59) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
“I like going to the Fitness Express because I currently live in the Residence Halls, so it is more convenient,” first-year apparel merchandising student Parrisa Moore said.
According the Fitness Express Website, membership orientation takes place Monday to Friday.
In order to officially use the facility and receive access to the key cards, students must attend a 20-minute orientation, and fill out liability paperwork, safety rules and policies for the facility.
The fitness express currently holds 16 weight stations, and 12 cardiovascular machines.
Some of the machines offered include a seated chest press, inner thigh, vertical butterfly, outer thigh, shoulder press, calf raise and lateral pull down among many more.
Cardiovascular machines include, life fitness treadmills, stair climber, versa climber, concept two rower, recumbent bikes and elliptical machines.
Free weights include dumbbell sets that range from five pounds to 50 pounds with weight benches included.
Although the fitness express does not have as many options as the BRIC, it’s great to know there is another option for students who are looking for convenience, or would simply like to try something new.
