 The Jacobs Fitness Center is a state-of-the-art facility that provides quality health and fitness services to the entire AU community.  The Fitness Center was made possible by a generous donation from William I Jacobs, former Chairman of the American University Board of Trustees and Class of 1966. 

Conveniently located on the first floor of the Sport Center, the Jacobs Fitness Center is the main hub for fitness on campus. Members can also gain access the Reeves Aquatic Center and Bender Arena through the facility. 

Rental Equipment: Jacobs also offers outdoor fitness equipment available for checkout by AU students. Items include: outdoor basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, and footballs. Items must be returned the same day they are checked out.
