While Westminster has plans to build a football stadium, it has yet to improve workout facilities on campus. This means athletes and non-athletes are left to exercise in tight spaces with run-down equipment.

Westminster Head Athletic Trainer Josh Thompson said that most of the equipment is from 1996 but that the treadmills were bought in in 2006.
“I get complaints about the equipment everyday,” he said, adding, “We spend about $700 per year on repairing the equipment.”
Students say they would like to have more updated equipment in spaces that allow for positive social interaction and a better workout atmosphere.
