On April 28, the West Islip School District completed the renovations to the West Islip High School fitness center. The newly renovated facility features state-of-the-art equipment, which provides opportunities for beginner, intermediate and advanced trainers.
“We were able to design a room where all individuals, regardless of ability or experience levels, can feel comfortable training and receive the physical, mental, emotional and psychological benefits of exercise,” said Tim Horan, West Islip School District’s director of health, physical education, athletics and recreation. ”The room, complete with cardio equipment, strength training machines, power racks, functional training space and custom West Islip branding, will provide a foundation of health and wellness for the student body.”
Upon entering each of the three entrances, users have two large open lines of sight/walking spaces without the clutter of machines. Cardio machines are lined by the windows, and the addition of the power racks provide a variety of exercises while minimizing risk for all users.
Six treadmills and three high-tech internet-based pieces of equipment will be forthcoming to the fitness center. West Islip High School’s physical education staff have received initial training, and students have already begun using the space.
