The Cal State LA Fitness Center boasts state-of-the-art equipment to develop cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, and muscular strength. To improve cardiovascular fitness, one can choose from several modes of exercise. Four star-trac treadmills allow indoor walking or running, two precor elliptical trainers facilitate low-impact aerobic activity, as do two cybex stairsteppers and five cybex (two upright, three recumbent) stationary bicycles. Upper body aerobic training can also be performed on a robust arm ergometer that allows easy wheelchair access.
To develop muscular strength and endurance, there are a variety of resistance modes to choose from. The Center houses a large stock of free-weights, selectorized (weight-stack) machines (Cybex), plate-loaded machines (Hammer Strength), a multigym station (Maxicam), a cable cross-over system (Icarian), two squat racks, a Smith machine, and a functional training station (Cybex). Such an assortment of equipment suits a wide range of needs, allowing tailor-made resistance-training programs to be designed for individuals of all ability levels. Stretching mats also allow floor exercises to be performed for the purpose of developing flexibility.
The Center is staffed with kinesiology majors who have expertise in prescribing exercise programs to develop the different components of health-related fitness.
