The Carol and Park B. Smith Wellness Center, located within the Hart Recreation Center, provides state-of-the-art fitness equipment for varsity athletes and all other members of the Holy Cross community.
The 15,000-square-foot facility provides a highly versatile strength and conditioning center for Holy Cross' 600 student-athletes on the first level. There are areas for speed development programs, as well as for strength and endurance conditioning. The second floor has been designed for use by all students, faculty and staff. It has two sections: one for aerobic training, and the other for cardiovascular, variable-resistance and strength training. A diverse selection of equipment accommodates users ranging from beginners to advanced athletes.
The center also offers fitness and wellness programs such as kickboxing and yoga. Sixty-five-hundred square feet of the Center is devoted solely to varsity athletes and is run by a full-time strength and conditioning coach. This space accommodates a much greater number of athletes at one time and allows teams to train together at times more convenient to their busy schedules as student-athletes.
