Fitness and Rec

Daily physical activity isn’t just good for the body; it helps sharpen the mind too.  It is especially critical for college students to engage in physical activity to help maintain balance and well-being. Our Fitness and Recreation team offers a wide range of possibilities.

You’re invited to play! Our no-cost intramural sports program is a fun way to interact with other students, faculty, and staff while blowing off some steam.

  • Volleyball
  • Basketball
  • Pickleball
  • Dodgeball

  • Flag Football
  • Bowling
  • Softball

Personal Training

Personal training can be a great way to get started for those who are too shy to work with a group. It can also be a way to focus steadily on personal fitness goals, whether they are centered on losing weight, gaining muscle mass, or increasing flexibility.

Beacon provides free personal fitness and strength training to students, regardless of fitness level. Our trainers are certified through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). Appointments are available five days per week.

Group Classes

Sometimes, it’s just more fun to play with other people. We offer daily group classes that will get your mind off your studies and your body into motion. From beginner stretch classes to Zumba and weight training to yoga, our fitness center offers a wide range of group classes.

New Intramural and Fitness Center

As part of the $12 Beacon Promise Capital Campaign, the construction of an $8.5 million, 28,000-square-foot Intramural and Fitness Center is critical to enhancing our students’ physical wellness and quality of life. While physical activity is important for all, it is especially important for Beacon College’s neurodivergent student population.

For students with learning differences, participation in fitness routines and exercise in group sports is critical for fostering and promoting self-confidence, focus, mental health, discipline, and social development.
