For the Physically Challenged
Great News! The ARC has equipment that a physically challenged person can use to workout.
All of the LifeFitness treadmills, bikes, and crosstrainers have a voice virtual trainer that can guide you.
The screens can be made larger so that the information can be read easier.
You can create your own workout online and place it on a USB drive and then by inserting it into the machine it will run your workout for you. For a strength workout you can use one of the Dual Adjustable Pulleys from a wheel chair.
There are three SciFit machines located in the middle of the Main Aerobic Area.
A Bariatric treadmill with quality preset programs beginning with walking and low intensity workouts.
There is a seated stepper with arm pulls that will help if you have any knees issues that makes it hard for you to run.
The last machine is the Upper Body Ergometer (UBE). This machine can be used seated, standing or from a wheel chair.
The Functional Trainer located near the stairs is accessible from a wheel chair and can be adjusted in one-tenth of a pound increments. That means you can start at whatever weight is comfortable for you and increase by one-tenth as you get stronger (1.6 lbs to 1.7lbs). The machine uses air to adjust the weight so there are no weight plates or pins to move.
How to Enter the ARC
To gain access to the ARC using the East entrance, in between the ARC and the 5th street parking garage,
you would need to e-mail Miles Leford so he can make your card a building wide access card. Then you will be able to swipe your Mocs card at the East entrance and the doors will automatically open.
