CSU Rec Center reopens with new safety guidelines
The Cleveland State University Recreation Center has reopened, giving back students some sense of normalcy amid all the changes to our daily lives.
The Recreation Center has reopened its gym and added virtual alternatives for students wishing to work out.
CSU student and workout enthusiast Daulton Shriver was ecstatic about the opening of the Rec Center.
“I was pumped man, having that spot where I can relieve stress and be comfortable working out and not having to find somewhere new is amazing,” the avid rec center user said.
“All the precautions and what is going on inside the Rec Center to make it work makes me feel really safe too," Shriver said. "It’s the perfect situation for me.”
The reopening of the Rec Center allows students to workout in a safe manner with safety measures in place. The safety measures, including wearing a mask at all times, proper social distancing and allocated staircases for a smooth flow of movement have been set by the Rec Center administration for both staff and students to ensure the safety of all.
Working out and daily exercise is something that is important to many students around campus including Shriver.
“I just know how happy this makes a lot of people. College life is hard and this avenue to relieve the stress is major,” Shriver said.
Another workout enthusiast and Cleveland State student, Grant Baker, was happy about the reopening despite some of the new rules.
“Having to wear the mask while working out and some of the time restrictions when I can go is annoying, but I know what has to be done,” Baker said. “I’ll deal with it. It's better than nothing.”
The Rec Center will also be offering virtual work out classes for those who aren’t able to work out on campus. The Viking Olympics as well as some virtual classes in various departments to suit different needs for everybody.
