Utilized by the men and women Washington State student-athletes who compete in the 17 intercollegiate sports the university offers, the complex, which opened in 1997, consists of two floors covering 14,000 square feet. The weight room staff uses the latest strength and conditioning equipment to serve the unique needs of the WSU student-athletes.
Already considered one of the best in the nation, the Strength and Conditioning Complex underwent a renovation during the spring of 2010.
Prior to the renovation, the layout featured eight stations each for squat press and Olympic style lifting, and 12 for bench press. After the renovation there are 24 racks for each of the three lifts and new sets of rubber weights for each rack. Additionally, a set of TRX straps, a suspension training tool device that allows athletes to receive an entire workout without using weights, is installed on each rack.
Furthermore, a new rubber surface, mondo flooring, was installed on both floors of the room. Despite the presence of more equipment, the layout has been rearranged to allow more space for athletes to move around within the complex.
