More Squat Racks / Bench Presses in the Gym
The squat racks and bench press are full on a routine basis, and these are two very key components to having a great gym. Every day at peak hours everything in the realm of free weights is full, but the cardio area has never been full. This would allow more people to workout what they want to work out, and relieve some stress during workouts. We need healthy bodies to pair our healthy minds!
We agree with Jess Zielinski, but we have also informed SRC of this.
it seems that the solution to this problem was to remove one incline bench and one flat bench... seems like we've gone backwards!
Yeah, I informed them that 3 years ago with their suggestion box multiple times. We see how well that works. They give you some nonsense about how there is no space or not enough money. They hire engineering students to work there and not one of them can find the space for more equipment? We pay a lot of money for these services. They need to get it together.

Go fill out a comment card at the SRC. I know that last year, they posted surveys on what students wanted added to the gym and the responses all showed a want for new cardio machines. If you want squat racks/bench presses (which I know a lot of students do), get friends to start filling out comment cards as well. Unfortunately, it seems the SRC only gets new equipment each year and so this would probably not happen until next year, but will help out future Mines students for sure!
