Special Events and Programs

Recreational Sports & Fitness hosts a number of special events that bring students, faculty, staff, community members, and alumni together for fun and active experiences.

We have monthly, annual, and one-time events and are always looking for more ideas! Some of our most popular events include Late Night at the RecPush-Pull Competition, and Women on Weights.

Women on Weights

Women on Weights is a program designed to help women feel more comfortable in the weight room and get excited about training to become STRONG! In each session, the trainers will go over form and technique as well as how to build your own weightlifting program! This program will benefit the beginner lifters as well as intermediate lifters.
