A variety of equipment is available for use in this area, including stability balls, medicine balls, yoga and floor mats, balance discs, power bars, jump ropes, plyometric boxes, gliding discs, bosu balls, steps, rubber coated dumbbells and resistance bands/tubing.
Showers, Changing, Storage Area
Cooper Fitness Center has shower areas in both the men and women's restrooms. Glimmerglass Fitness Center does not have showers available in the facility, however, the men's and women's restrooms may be used as changing areas. Both fitness centers have "day use only" lockers available for storage of belongings. Extended overnight use of lockers may result in the removal of the lock.
Members who do not choose to use the changing/shower areas or the lockers are asked to store coats, duffel bags, boots, etc. at the coat racks while using the center.
Both centers are equipped with stereo systems. These systems are used by the exercise class instructors when they are conducting classes. When classes are not in session, the stereo system is used for the purpose of providing listening pleasure to ALL members in the center. Only Fitness Center staff members are allowed to operate the stereo systems.
