Hamilton Rec Center’s top-of-the-line amenities

The Hamilton Rec Center is one of the West Slope’s top-notch facilities and is available exclusively to the Colorado Mesa University community.

The rec center makes a significant effort to engage students in fun, healthful activities like the popular spin classes, small-group boot camps in our state-of-the-art functional training area — equipped with the popular Rogue Infinity Rack — and TRX classes that offer a fun challenge to both the “newbie” and the experienced athlete.

Hamilton has expanded and added multiple free weight areas that enable individuals to take charge of their workout and utilize both cutting-edge equipment and the old-school barbells and dumbbells that have been the staple in fitness routines for decades.

There are not many university recreation centers that boast licensed spinning and TRX training facilities, as well as top-of-the-line cardio equipment. In fact, the Hamilton Recreation Center was the first university in the U.S. to purchase the internet-capable Precor treadmill and elliptical. With web browsing opportunities, TV-on-Demand and an app that lets users set and track fitness goals, there are many more reasons why one should work out in the rec center, than there are excuses not to.

Wellness assessments are a free service offered to all CMU students, faculty and staff members. Personal training, massage therapy and nutrition counseling are also available to students, faculty and staff at exceptionally low rates. With a team of nationally certified and state licensed wellness staff members, Hamilton can offer top of the line service in personal training, massage and nutrition counseling.

Another perk of membership at Hamilton is the group exercise program, included in the cost of joining the rec center. Classes are available to people of all fitness levels and include Zumba, strength and tone classes, boot camps, various types of yoga, spinning, TRX suspension training and core classes.
