05/17/2020

As we reopen the Recreation and Fitness Center tomorrow, our priority and commitment to our members will be to provide a safe environment.⠀
⠀
In addition to the information we have already shared, there are a number of temporary policies and procedures we are enacting to help us accomplish this goal. We are asking for your commitment to help us.
⠀
Per State of Alabama Guidelines, all members will be asked a series of questions regarding COVID-19 exposure before entrance into the facility.⠀
⠀
During this phased return to normal operations, we ask that all patrons exhibit the following behaviors while using the RFC:⠀
⠀
🔸Follow temporary policies⠀
🔸Wear PPE, including masks as recommended by the CDC, if possible⠀
🔸Make an appointment if you need to speak with a staff member in person⠀
🔸Practice proper personal hygiene⠀
🔸Practice CDC social distancing guidelines⠀
🔸Closely follow all signage and floor decals⠀
🔸Clean equipment before and after use⠀
🔸Use only 1 piece of equipment at a time (no circuits or super sets) so machines can be easily cleaned after use⠀
🔸Consider limiting workout length to avoid unnecessary exposure⠀
🔸Bring your own personal exercise equipment: towels, yoga mats, etc.⠀
🔸Refrain from partner/group workouts⠀
🔸Let a staff member know if you witness anyone not following these guidelines or if you feel unsafe⠀
⠀
Preparing for your workout may be a different process as we implement our temporary procedures.⠀
⠀
Please bring a water bottle as drinking fountains are closed. Showers and locker rooms will be closed, but restrooms and changing areas are still available.⠀
⠀
Please consider arriving to the RFC ready to workout.⠀
⠀
Visit our website, www.jsu.edu/urec for our hours of operation and an overview of what is open.⠀
⠀
There will be some adjustments to expect during each phase of our reopening. We appreciate your help and understanding as we work through this time together.⠀
⠀
If you have specific concerns, please reach out to us.

URec is super proud of how far Cade has come and enjoyed his time spent working with us! 🙌🏼 We can't wait to see you do great things and wish you all the best! Don't forget to come back and visit your URec fam! 🥳

Congratulations to Cade Julius of Helena, AL for his completion of the ON TO JSU program! Cade entered the program with Cohort 2 in the Fall of 2018. In addition to the semester Transition Classes he completed, he successfully audited several academic classes, health and wellness classes, and sports management classes to complete his certificated program. For two years, Cade lived on campus in Patterson Hall, went to classes, participated in club activities, attended student support groups, and completed a year of the most rewarding work experience as the assistant to the team manager of the JSU Softball Team.

When asked about his time at JSU, after much reflection, Cade said he wanted to thank Coach Jana McGinnis (and the softball team) for treating him like part of the team. It meant so much to him that she always told him what a great job he did and how lucky they were to have him. In addition, he stated he is proud that he had two jobs in his second year--one with the softball team, as well as his volunteer time at the Health and Wellness Rec Center. Of course, he couldn't forget to mention how much he enjoyed going to the football, baseball and basketball games with friends. Cade is a Gamecock through and though!

His future plans are to continue his living independently and to obtain a job in the health and wellness recreational field.

Everyone at JSU and On To JSU wishes Cade the best in all his future endeavors!!

need to see a schedule for fall am looking for a water fitness class
The staff is so polite. I did one session with a personal trainer to show me how to use the machines. Dustin was very professional and helpful. The gym is top-notch and very clean. I love it!
I am an alumni and wanted to know what it will cost to join. How much to bring a guest sometime.
Are you offering any water aerobic classes?
When will you get a set up bench? I have talked to multiple staff members and no one can point me to one or tell me when you'll get one. You have a Jacob's ladder machine and 2 $4000 assault treadmills, but no place for me to lock my feet and do a natural sit up.
BUTI YOGA 4:45 today!!! Meet in Group Fitness room!! No Yoga experience required :)
