The Health and Physical Education Center is arguably the finest athletic, fitness and recreational facility located between Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH. Built in 1997, the 50,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility features many amenities including a 3,500 seat arena, fitness center, classrooms, meeting spaces, and the exercise physiology laboratory.
The basketball arena is comparable to many Division I facilities. In addition, the facility has become the host site for many area high school activities including the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference girls and boys basketball championships and the Ohio High School Activities Association sectional and district playoffs.
The Ohio University Eastern Fitness Center has remained a core component of the facility since its inception. The Fitness Center is available for all OHIO Eastern faculty, staff and students. The fitness center offers a complete package of strength, resistant training and cardiovascular training for people of all ages in a pleasant, non-threatening atmosphere. New cardiovascular equipment was added in the Spring of 2022.
Free for Students
The fitness center is free for all Ohio University Eastern Campus faculty, staff and students.
The fitness center is also open to any Belmont College student. Please call the Dean's office at 740-695-7077 for building access information.
