Athletic Training Facilities
The C. Homer Bast Physical Education and Recreation Center is the home of the Belk Fitness Center and the Roanoke College Athletic Training Program. It has two traditional classrooms, an instructional technology classroom, the Roanoke College Hall of Fame Room, the Belk Fitness Center and the Athletic Training Room.
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.
Dr. Elizabeth Holbrook and two of her students set out this fall to find ways to improve healthy habits for residents in Roanoke's West End community. Their suggestions could be incorporated into a city revitalization plan for the area.
