Fitness Programs

Florida Poly's recreation program provides opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to engage in physical activities to create healthy lifestyle habits and improve their physical and mental well-being. 

Students are invited to work out in the Fitness Center, go for a swim, or take advantage of the beach volleyball, basketball, and tennis courts. There's also plenty to do on the recreation fields and there's always time to grab a hammock from the Student Development Center and enjoy a little relazation in the Oak Grove.


Fitness Center

The Fitness Center, located in the Student Development Center, is open to all Florida Poly students. Employees may use the facilities with an active membership.

What’s in the fitness area?

  • 2 power racks
  • 12 plate loaded machines
  • 12 pieces of cardio equipment
  • Cable machine
  • Assisted dips/pull-ups

The multipurpose room allows students to have a space to reinvent the way they move. Students can reserve the room or drop in during open hours and as long as the room is available they can use it. The room is great for dancing, circuits, group workouts, studying, and anything else you can imagine.

Our greatest resource is our staff. We are here to support you. We want you to be comfortable and feel welcome at the gym. Ask us for a tour, how a machine works, or for a spot during your lift.
