The Kirkwood Community College Recreation Center is a one-stop shop for fitness which includes machines, basketball courts, a track, fitness DVD's and more.

Brett Baumgart, intramurals coordinator, said, "At the Rec Center you can do multiple things; table tennis, ping pong, billiards, basketball, run around the track, free weights, circuit machines. We also have Insanity DVDs and P90x that you can check out at the fitness room."

Students may sign up for intramurals at the Rec Center. The activities are scheduled periodically throughout the semester and include indoor soccer, rock-paper-scissors and paintball. A full list of intramurals offered is posted on the Kirkwood website.

Free fitness classes are also offered to anyone who is looking for a more fast pace workout. There are many classes to choose from such as taekwondo, non-contact boxing, body fit and more. Sign-ups are also on the Kirkwood website.

While playing basketball, Ben Harmeyer, a student at Kirkwood, said, "My favorite thing is probably just getting into a pickup game. Back in high school we used to play for actual competition and I kind of miss that and that's what you get here."

Derek VanDenberg, a student, commented on how much he liked the opportunity. "I like coming to the rec to play a lot of basketball. It's my favorite sport and I miss it from high school," he stated.
