The Fitness Centre opened its door to CSUN students, faculty/staff, and alumni in the Spring of 1995. Being a partnership between Associated Students and the University Student Union, the Fitness Centre served the entire campus community. The purpose of the Fitness Centre's programs and services was to offer CSUN students, faculty/staff, and alumni members the opportunity to engage in a healthy lifestyle. Through the facility, equipment, and human resources, the Fitness Centre provided a motivational environment in which our patrons were encouraged to maximize their results. Additionally, through other collaborative efforts with other groups and departments on-campus, it was our greatest desire to make fitness and wellness an integral part of campus life.
On April 17-18, 2007, 57% of the students who voted passed the referendum to build a 100,000 plus square foot facility center. Construction for the 100,000 plus square-foot facility and outdoor field complex is slated to begin in the Fall of 2009. Opened on January 26, 2012.
Fitness Zones — The SRC has three different fitness zones that will be equipped with resources to help you achieve your fitness goals:
Inside the SRC are three studios dedicated to group exercise and fitness training.
Beautiful wood floors in this area provide a great surface for several types of activities from basketball, to volleyball and badminton.
The MatArena is a multi-activity court that can be used for multiple sports. The area also has bleachers for spectators and will be a great place to watch games and tournaments.
Located east of the Student Recreation Center is the 130,000 sq. ft. illuminated outdoor SRC Field. Four lights that stand 90 ft. high border the field and a small support building holds storage space, a drinking fountain and restrooms.
The artificial turf is made of silica sand and recycled rubber tires, which creates a surface that is strong, but soft and prevents abrasion. Studies have shown that this turf is safer than natural grass, leading to fewer muscle tears, lower ACL trauma and fewer ligament tears.
The SRC has two pools available for your aquatic adventures. The Rec pool is located at the SRC and the Plaza pool is located adjacent to Subway in the University Student Union plaza. The Rec pool is available for both recreational and lap swimming. A large deck with furniture is also available for those that would like to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The Plaza pool is programmed for lap swimming and special events but also has deck chairs available for those that would like to kick back in the sun for a bit.
The SRC offers a variety of open recreation activities such as basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer and floor hockey.
