Heather Dunn ('05 BA)

PE teacher and volleyball coach,
Barnett Junior High in Arlington

Workout schedule:
Weekdays at 6:45 a.m., anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half.

Do you work out more now that the MAC has opened?
A lot more. There are more machines, and it's more appealing.

What equipment do you use?
I like the tread climber cardio equipment and the elliptical cardio. If I run, I use the new track. I also use the Life Fitness weight machines.

When working out, do you listen to music or watch TV?
A little of both. I always have my iPod to listen to, but if there's something of interest on TV, I'll watch it.

What music and shows do you prefer?
I listen to everything, depending on what mood I'm in. I like watching ESPN, usually Pardon the Interruption or Sports Center.

Favorite features:
I like the indoor track and how it opens up to the gym floor. It's also wider and longer than the old one, so instead of running 16 laps for a mile, it's only nine.

How does this compare to the old facility?
The MAC is beyond better. It's larger and has more and better equipment. The gym space is better. There are more machines with TVs and more rooms for aerobics classes.

Describe the MAC in five words or fewer.
State of the art.
