New college fitness center offers inexpensive options for Southeast valley residents

The new Coyote Center opened on the Chandler-Gilbert Community College Pecos Campus on July 15. Included in the new building is a 4,000-square-foot fitness center offering a full line of cardiovascular equipment, resistance training machines, a complete free weight section with Olympic lifting platforms, and an outdoor turf field. There is also a 1,800-square-foot group fitness room. 

Community members can enroll in a non-credit class for $80 and have 15 weeks of access to the fitness center. If they sign-up for the two-credit class (PED115), they’ll have access to the fitness center as well as be able to drop into any open group fitness class including yoga, pilates, bootcamp fitness, stretch and relaxation, meditative yoga, tai chi and zumba.

Access to the center means access to the staff who have advanced degrees in exercise science and personal training or strength and conditioning certifications through accredited organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine, National Strength and Conditioning Association, or National Academy of Sports Medicine.

Other free services available to anyone who enrolls include exercise program design, blood pressure checks, body composition assessment, body circumference measurements, cardiovascular fitness assessment and muscular strength/endurance assessments.

The fitness center opens on Tuesday, Sept. 2. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
