Weber State Opens New Wellness Center

Press Release

September 26, 2013


Ogden — Weber State University held a grand opening of its new Wildcat Center for Health Education and Wellness Wednesday. Events included a ribbon cutting, reception and tours.

The 20,000-square-foot expansion cost $8.5 million, which was paid for by a bond from student fee revenue. It includes a three-lane suspended track for recreational runners, an elevated pedestrian walkway, two group exercise studios, strength training areas and day-use locker rooms. One of the studios now has a screen for virtual-ride cycling classes. Campus recreation, student wellness and employee wellness departments also have new offices in the added space.

“The elevated track and pedestrian walkway are great additions because people used to have to walk across the track to get to the other side of the building, and that was a huge risk-management issue,” said Teri Bladen, director of Campus Recreation.

Brady Harris, executive vice president of the Weber State University Student Association, said the expansion allows students to have a consistent space in which to exercise.

“Students told us in senate that there were conflicts with athletic competitions and academic classes that shut down parts of the gym, so the addition will ensure that there will always be a place for students to exercise on campus,” Harris said. “The goal of this gym was to allow any student, regardless of where they are in fitness level, to exercise comfortably and improve their health while attending WSU.”
