Phillips Exeter AcademyDowner Family Fitness Center
Project At A Glance
Strength and conditioning training has rapidly changed over the years with a greater emphasis being placed on more athletic movements, gross motor activity and multi-joint exercise. With limited space available to accommodate new training methods, Phillips Exeter Academy looked to Engelberth Construction to construct a state-of-the-art fitness center that met the fitness needs of both school athletes and students.
Built on the ground floor of Thompson Gymnasium, the new fitness center provides 9,000 sf of open space; a turf space for multi-direction drills and agility training along with a designated area for equipment, including elliptical machines, treadmills, stationary bikes and free weight equipment. To enhance the training experience, a music system, televisions and video technology were installed.
