Reynolds Gym ‘sneak peek’ offered to faculty and staff

This message was emailed to faculty and staff on Aug. 1 by Communications and External Relations, on behalf of Joe Cassidy, executive director of campus fitness and recreation:

Dear Faculty and Staff,

After more than a year of watching Reynolds Gym’s transformation from the outside, faculty and staff have a chance to go inside August 17 for an exclusive “sneak peek.”

In Campus Recreation, we are holding the special event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. entirely for you.  We encourage you to walk through the gym’s front door that day and see all that’s new.  It’s an opportunity to walk throughout the Phase II of Reynolds Gym before it opens on August 24 for the entire campus community. (Phase III is scheduled to be completed March 2018.)

Combined with the already opened Sutton Center, Phase II will offer exceptional facilities, equipment and programs.

What will you find once you walk through that door?  Exactly what faculty and staff have wanted to see for quite some time.

More fitness and weight equipment has been on the campus community’s “wish list” and that will be there.  Reynolds Phase II has five fitness areas with almost 19,000 square feet of fitness and weight equipment.  Not only is the amount of equipment almost triple what was previously available in the Miller Fitness Center, but it is all new, state-of-the-art equipment with integrated technology.

And, there is much more.  Phase II also offers a bouldering and climbing wall, beautiful locker and shower facilities, the Student Health Service, the Office of Wellbeing and comfortable lounge space including a 3,000-square-foot living room.

Memberships are complimentary for all benefits eligible Wake Forest University faculty and staff.  Memberships are available for other members of the campus community including spouses, partners and adult dependent children.

Additionally, not only will Campus Recreation continue to offer group fitness classes at incredibly reasonable rates, but a dedicated functional training area will offer personal training and small group training.

Reynolds and Sutton will have convenient hours so that faculty and staff can enjoy use of the facilities and equipment from early morning to late evening.

Information about hours, memberships, group fitness classes, personal and small group training, lockers and other details are all available on Campus Recreation’s web page.

We look forward to seeing all who will have the opportunity to visit August 17.  If you have any questions in advance, contact at us x5838.
