Halas Recreation Center offers a variety of treadmills, elliptical trainers, upright bikes, recumbent bike, and stair climbers. Halas also features both free weights and selectorized equipment.

The Halas Pool is an 8 lane, 25 yard pool that reaches 7 feet deep and allows for both lap swim and space for free swim. Kickboards, pull-buoys, and aqua jogging belts are provided for members’ use. The Halas Pool can be accessed through the locker rooms or the hallway by the Family Changing Room.  

Upstairs, a multipurpose gym includes three courts that can be used for volleyball, basketball, badminton, and indoor soccer. Around the multipurpose court is a 1/11 mile track used for running and walking.

Halas offers a full Group Fitness Schedule including a variety of cardio, toning, kickboxing, yoga, and Pilates classes. We also offer several Spin classes in our Spin Studio. All Group Fitness classes are free to all full time students and Halas Members.
