New York Shape of Mind

The Pace fitness center at One Pace Plaza gets buff for the New Year… and shows off its new look with a ribbon cutting on February 9.

On February 9, from 12:00 to 2:00 the fitness center in One Pace Plaza will get to show faculty, staff, and students that all its hard work has paid off with a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating its new look. The event will include Zumba and yoga classes, a faculty/staff/student volleyball game, relay race, body and wellness checks, plus healthy goodies include smoothies.

The fitness center is being updated to include: a glass-front exercise area with spin bikes, cardio theatre, elliptical sets, new free weights, and a big screen TV; a converted stretching room with mats and balls; day lockers; and more. Pace also reached an agreement with Stuyvesant High School that offers faculty, staff, and students a special rate to use their pool and free shuttle rides to and from.

“We’ve heard a lot of requests for more wellness and fitness options,” says Dean for Students Marijo Russell-O’Grady, PhD. “This is our way of saying, ‘We hear you.’”

The fitness center at One Pace Plaza (C-Level) officially re-opens on January 24 and is open seven days a week  to faculty, staff, and students for free.

And, of course, if you’re on the PLV Campus, learn more about the Goldstein Health, Fitness, and Recreation Center, also open seven days a week, with aerobics and aquatics programs.
