The building contains a multi-purpose room for fitness classes, a ping-pong lounge space, weight equipment, and cardio equipment, so every student can find the activity right for them.
Intramurals at Heidelberg provide all students an opportunity to participate in recreational sports and are an integral part of campus life. Participation in intramurals provides friendly competition, exercise and recreation. Winning is not the primary goal but rather, the opportunity to exercise, develop leadership skills and meet new people are the greatest rewards of intramural sports. All Heidelberg students, faculty, and staff may participate in intramural sports.
