On-Campus Fitness Center

Our fitness center is staffed by Exercise Physiologist Mark Modifica, who provides residents with customized conditioning plans and monitors progress towards their individual wellness goals.

Our innovatively designed fitness center is equipped with:

  • A circuit line of Nautilus strength-training equipment, covering all major muscle groups
  • Treadmills
  • Bikes
  • Elliptical machines
  • NuSteps

The equipment, based upon current scientific research and evaluation, is designed to:

  • Enhance cardiovascular endurance
  • Boost muscular strength
  • Reduce the risk of injury

This supervised program of exercise classes, weight resistance and aerobic training offers key elements to healthy aging. Funding for the fitness center is provided in part by a grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and many private donors.
