Strength and Conditioning Center |
The $6.4 million, 21,000 square-foot strength and conditioning center opened in late July 2013. It features areas for weight training, cardiovascular workouts and speed and agility training, as well as offices for staff. Built on existing university property at the northwest corner of Romney Stadium, the state-of-the-art multi-level facility alleviates overcrowding in the former 5,800 square-foot strength and conditioning center and will accommodate almost 400 athletes from 16 sports programs.
The facility was made possible due to the largest single gift in the history of Aggie Athletics from an anonymous donor. The building is the largest such facility in the Mountain West and rivals any strength and conditioning complex in the country. Of the schools Utah State competes against in the Mountain West. Fresno State had the largest strength and conditioning center at 12,500 square feet, followed by Air Force (12,000 sq. ft.), Wyoming (11,100 sq. ft.), Hawai`i (10,000 sq. ft.), New Mexico (10,000 sq. ft.), Colorado State (10,000 sq. ft.), San Jose State (10,000 sq. ft.), UNLV (8,200 sq. ft.) and Nevada (8,000 sq. ft.)..
