No matter what your fitness goal may be, we’re sure to offer a class that fits your needs.  Classes last 45-60 minutes, and vary in intensity.  Students and members will receive a semester schedule of classes offered. What’s more, classes are included in their membership at no extra cost!




Pope Wellness Center has a full-size basketball court with six hoops. This is a popular spot for students to shoot hoops or put together a 3-on-3 game.



The Pope Wellness Center contains a full line of cardio equipment, such as treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent bikes, upright bikes, spinning bikes, rowers, and a stair climber. For weight training, the facility has two platforms fully loaded with men’s and women’s barbells, bumper plates, and power racks. In addition, we have a full line of plate-loaded Hammer Strength and pin-loaded Body Masters strength training equipment. We also have a variety of functional equipment like TRX Suspension Trainers and Battle Ropes as well as core strengthening equipment.
