The Belk Fitness Center
The Belk Fitness Center is Roanoke's new state of the art fitness center. It includes a large aerobic area with treadmills, stationary bikes, Stairmasters, and elliptical machines. It also holds over 25 Body Masters and Hammer Strength machines as well as a wide range of free weight equipment. The Belk Fitness Center is open to the entire college community and also used by the Athletic Trainers for the rehabilitation of the college's athletes.
"We want to show students that they don't have to hit the treadmill, that they can play rec basketball and soccer. We provide all the equipment, so they just basically have to have athletic shoes and shorts, like showing up for P.E. class," says Ryberg.
