ADVANCED EXERCISE COLLABORATES
With help from Advanced Exercise, a Hammer Strength distributor based in Colorado, the Aztecs outfitted the weight room with strength training equipment built for performance.
“The part that excites me the most about it is the functionality in the design of the room,” explained Adam Hall, the assistant athletic director for strength and conditioning. “Working with Rick Barbee at Advanced Exercise we were able to design the room in a way that multiple teams could use the facility at the same time and have plenty of space. Hammer Strength was our choice because of the staff that they have. When it was time to move on the project, everything came together perfectly.”
The 11,500-square-foot strength training facility in the Fowler Athletics Center was gutted, renovated and turned into a world-class training area in the summer of 2016.
