Cardio equipment, strength training machines and power racks are included in the new and improved fitness center at West Islip High School.
Renovations were completed April 28, and students have already started using the space. School officials said six treadmills and three high-tech internet-based pieces of equipment are forthcoming to the fitness center.
The state-of-the-art equipment in the gym provides exercise and training 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,” he added.
