The Fun Starts Here!

---Develop a Game Plan
Your college life will have many demands and so will your professional and personal life once you graduate. You can make your life healthy and less stressful by developing good habits at Western New England University.

Choose a Fitness Strategy
The Alumni Healthful Living Center provides you with an outstanding facility that rivals the area's best health clubs. If you're an intramural athlete, you'll find everything you need to succeed. Our indoor track, fitness center, strength training room, practice courts, and eight-lane pool will help you gain a competitive edge.

The AHLC also offers you a variety of classes to join from spin cycling to Pilates. If you want the motivation and structure of group exercise, you'll find many options to choose from that work within your schedule and interests.

If you would rather work out at your own pace, you can take advantage of our free-weight and strength training equipment, cardiovascular exercise machines, and indoor track. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff includes both full and part-time instructors with degrees in exercise science. Along with dedicated interns, they'll help you find the programs that fit your personal fitness goals. There's always something new to try at the Alumni Healthful Living Center.

Stop by Just for Fun
There's no better place to relieve stress than at the Alumni Healthful Living Center. Join friends to shoot some hoops, support your favorite varsity team at the field house, or battle it out with your roommate on the squash court. If you need to cool off, you can kayak, canoe, or play basketball and volleyball in the pool's recreation area. When you're done exercising, you can unwind by taking a steam in the saunas located in the men's and women's locker rooms. Sometimes the best reason to stop by is just for the fun of it.
