Staying Active in the Gator Nation

Southwest Recreational Center

The Southwest Recreational Center offers something for every student’s unique interest and workout plan. Whether it is its two-story cardio area with everything from stair steppers to treadmills or the professional weight room complete with a machine to work every muscle in the body, the facility was designed with students in mind. To keep its visitors healthy and stress free, the center is complete with a smoothie bar and massage therapy rooms. If you are looking for a casual game instead of an intense workout, the facility also includes six full basketball courts in addition to six racquetball courts.

Student Recreational Center

The Student Recreational Center at the University of Florida is designed perfectly for students living in the heart of campus. Located right next to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, students living in dormitories never have an excuse to miss a workout. The facility sacrifices little for its location, complete with a cardio area as well as machines and a free weight section. One of the most attractive parts about this facility is its pool which allows students to cool off while putting in a great workout. After a good sweat session, students can refuel with Moe’s or Chomp It, which are both located right outside the center.

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium

Students who have experienced a game in The Swamp know just how beautiful Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is. While it usually holds 90,000 screaming fans, the stadium is known for being a workout space with a view in the off season. Whether you prefer running stadiums or making up your own workout, there are few things that will make you feel more like a part of the Gator Nation than working up a sweat in The Swamp. Thanks to its size, the stadium allows students to work out in large groups to spread the motivation.

Broward Outdoor Recreational Complex

One of the most unique areas on campus is the Broward Outdoor Recreational Complex. Not only does the complex include a series of tennis and sand volleyball courts, it is also completed by a roller hockey rink and a skate park. Students with a valid Gator ID are able to checkout equipment from the booth to fully enjoy what the area has to offer. After you work up a sweat having fun with friends, the Broward pool is located just steps away. Both the pool and the outdoor center are adjacent to the Broward Dining Hall, allowing students to spend all day in the area.
