Rent Exercise Equipment at a Fraction of the Price of Buying!

In our current climate of remote work, limited business hours, and lifestyle restrictions due to the pandemic, fitness equipment is in short supply at gyms and retail stores, and expensive to purchase on your own. Now you can rent fitness equipment from the CSU Rec to use at home until we're fully re-opened. A variety of equipment bundles are available to meet your fitness interests, including bundles geared to specific group exercise classes and a wide range of fitness formats and styles.
