ORONO — Future users of the University’s of Maine’s Student Recreation Center, under construction and due to open next fall, will have the opportunity to try out some of the exercise equipment that might be available to them in the new facility.
UMaine campus recreation officials will bring top-of-the-line equipment to campus, beginning Monday Dec. 18, so that UMaine students, faculty members and staff members can try the new models and provide feedback. That community input will figure into final decisions on equipment purchases.
From Monday through Friday of next week, a Cybex Arc Trainer, provided by Maine Fitness in Bangor, will be set up in the Spirit Room on the second floor of Memorial Union. The other pieces will arrive in January, according to a schedule to be determined. Those machines — a Life Fitness 951TI treadmill with E-Z TV console, a Life Fitness Cable Motion Dual Adjustable Pulley Strength Trainer, and a Lemond Spinning Bike — will be set up in the Spirit Room and Latti Fitness Center during January.
The 89,000 square foot Student Recreation Center is located behind UMaine’s Hilltop Complex.
