It is important to know what your tuition includes so that you are able to use the resources given to you at their full capacity. One thing that is included in your tuition at Conestoga College, for all full-time students, is a membership to the Conestoga Recreation Complex.
In 2016 Conestoga completed a $21.6-million-dollar renovation on the Rec Center that includes updated fitness equipment, a triple gymnasium, an indoor track, and more within its 35,000 square feet. It is obviously a great place to work out and it is really convenient for students too since it is right on the Doon campus!
Drop-in fitness classes such as Zumba, yoga, and cycling are also available and included in your membership. Anyone of any skill level is welcome to join in on the fun!
If intramural sports are more your style, we have those too! Anyone can join in on sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, cricket and more! If you want to get a little more serious you can also try out for one of Conestoga’s many varsity teams.
Finally, if you are a bit more like me and working out in general just isn’t your strong suit, you can always come in and enjoy the Pita Pit or cheer on your fellow Condors from the bleachers. The next home game is for our women’s volleyball team on November 25th at 2pm against the St. Clair Saints, so feel free to go and show your support!
I know this is a lot of information and with so much to do and see here at the Rec Center it may be a little intimidating, however, if you are interested you can sign up for an orientation session. Conestoga Fitness Orientations are completely free and are a great way to learn more about what our complex has to offer. The are available multiple times a day and run by our Fitness and Health Promotion Students. You can sign up by visiting the Rec Centers website!
It is currently Wellness Week on campus so it’s also important to point out the Wellness Center is also located inside the Rec Center. They offer services such as massage therapy, chiropractor’s, and physiotherapy.
There is so much to offer here at the Rec Center and there no excuse not to stay fit with Conestoga’s easily accessible and up to date equipment and fitness spaces. So, grab your workout gear because it’s time to head to the gym!
