New UA Strength and Conditioning Center Makes
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Dozens of Razorback student-athletes got their first look at the new University of Arkansas Strength and Conditioning Center on Tuesday as the facility was open for workouts.
Members of the UA football team tested out the 34,000 square foot facility that includes 18,000 square feet of weight room space. In addition to the second floor space, 16,000 square feet of conditioning space, including sprint lanes and sand lanes, are available for training purposes.
“We are very excited that the day has arrived that we can start using this beautiful facility,” Arkansas Strength and Conditioning Coach Don Decker said. “We wanted to make this a state-of-the-art facility that will help us continue to compete nationally. You can tell the guys are really looking forward to breaking this new strength and conditioning center in.”
While final construction details are still being tended to, the facility is up and running. In the course of the next few weekends, prospective recruits will get an opportunity to see what the future will hold for Arkansas’ strength and conditioning program.
“I have had by far more questions from recruits about our strength and conditioning center this year than in the past,” Decker said. “Coach Broyles has done a fantastic job of securing the finest facilities in the country and this should only add to that reputation.”
All eight Razorback men’s sports will use the strength and conditioning center during the course of the next few weeks.
