The Rec Center not only leads the way in fitness and recreation technology and programming, but also is active in being "green," as the Rec Center is LEED certified and continues a number of initiatives to be environmentally-friendly, including our recylcling program, water-refilling stations, low-flow capacity shower heads, peroxide-based cleaning chemicals, reflective glass for energy conservation, and the use of recycled materials throughout the facility. Reducing our carbon footprint helps create a better world, a better facility and ultimately, a better you!
