Do you work out more now that the MAC has opened?
No, but the experience is definitely more enjoyable.
What equipment do you use?
I lift weights and use the stairmasters, treadmills, ellipticals and rowing machines.
When working out, do you listen to music or watch TV?
Both, but mainly I listen to music.
R&B, jazz, classic rock.
The entire second floor. As an alum, the MAC provides me with a tangible connection to the University. Some of my fondest memories as an undergraduate emanate from participating in recreational sports. It was there where I met many of my lifelong friends.
How does this compare to the old facility?
There's no comparison ... the MAC is just far superior.
