New Year, New Additions to the Rec!

Over Winter Break, we closed the facility for two weeks to keep it in tip-top shape — and to make some awesome updates.

While you’ll notice some of the fancy new things right off the bat (hello, new track surface!), you’ll also have to go online to check out all of the exciting new things we did over break — but more on that later.  We know you’re gonna love all the new upgrades!

Here’s the low-down on all the new stuff (besides 2017!):

A new starting line-up in the Jungle Gym featuring the Nautilus® Inspiration line from Core Health & Fitness.

In addition to these awesome updates, here’s a few more new things you might recognize around the facility:

Improvements in the Mizzou Wheelchair Basketball Training Suite

New turnstiles at West Entrance to match the SE entry/exit process. The West Entrance is still closed on weekends but open during the week, as a cost-saving measure…and added warmup/cooldown opportunity! #gettinginthoseextrasteps

New (and super bright!) LED lights on all courts and above the track

Last semester, we introduced the MizzouRec More app, allowing you to make online reservations for zouLIFE spa services and some TigerX classes (check out this blog post as a refresher). This semester, we added even more technology magic:

Paperless TigerX passes!

Instead of those pretty-but-small passes that could be lost or forgotten at home, TigerX is going digital — you will now use your student ID to sign in to TigerX classes! In addition, you’ll now sign up for ALL classes in advance online or through the MizzouRec More app. Want more info? We’ve got another blog post going in-depth on the new system. We know you’re going to love it as much as we do!

Did you know we have other membership-based fitness programs? Now, you can bundle.

Until Jan. 31, you can bundle a TigerX pass, Lifeworks Dance pass and Clark’s Boxing Gym membership for only $99! We’ll do the math for you — that’s a savings of $52!!!

There will still be opportunities to save throughout the semester — if you have a TigerX pass, you can always add on a Clark’s membership for only $29 (normal price is $39) or a Lifeworks pass for only $19 (normal price is $59).

Since our new system makes online registering for TigerX classes and booking spa appointments so easy, we’re doing the same for boot camps and various courses.

From the comfort of your home, you can now sign up for boot camps and courses (think CPR, instructor training and more) on our website or through the MizzouRec More app. We can still sign you up in zouLIFE — and student charge payment for these courses still has to be in-person — but this is a really convenient way to get the ball rollin’.

There’s no doubt in our minds that 2017 is going to be the best year yet — with all of these awesome upgrades, how could it not be?!
