Rec Center celebrates 10-year anniversary

The Cleveland State Recreation Center is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, with a different promotion on the 10th of each month.

The Recreation Center is also offering its members CSU Rec Rewards. Members earn these rewards by daily check-ins, group fitness class check-ins and premium program participation. When they share the Rec Rewards on Facebook, on their birthday, when they start a Rec Rewards account or by telling and having a friend join the Recreation Center.

During the February promotion if you bring a friend who may be interested in signing up, your friend will receive 500 Rec Reward points. If the friend signs up, you will get 4,500 Rec points. The points can be redeemed in six different thresholds of gifts. The thresholds include 1,250, 2,500, 5,000, 10,000, 17,500 and 25,000 points.

Recent upgrades at the Recreation Center include, 75-by-12-foot, three lane turf exercise area that allows people to incorporate components of CrossFit into their workout so they can work on types of movements they may do in everyday life.

The Rec has scheduled no other major upgrades, according to Mike Weaver, assistant director of facilities, but he would like to purchase some new treadmills and ellipticals in the future.

The Recreation Center does not cost students anything out of pocket as access to it is included in tuition for free fitness classes to students who bring their Viking ID or Membership ID.

The Recreation Center also offers students additional classes, which have additional fees. For example, Viking Sport, takes participants through circuit-style workouts. To join this two-time-a-week, five-week program costs $70. Among other offering are Viking Strong and Pink Gloves. Students may also rent a locker from the Recreation Center.

For any additional information feel free to go and look around the Recreation Center or visit the website,
