Aerobic Super Circuit Fitness Center & Weight Room

Sauk's modern Fitness Center provides total conditioning for men and women in a comfortable, air-conditioned and pleasant setting.  The Weight Room features over five thousand pounds of free weights that includes multiple sets of dumbbells ranging from 5 to 90 lbs.  The new facility also offers over two dozen pieces of the latest equipment from Cybex in the form of plate loaded and selectorized machines, as well as traditional benches, racks, and accessories.

Total Fitness Through Super Circuit Training

Total fitness results from our Super Circuit training, which combines resistance and aerobic exercise.  Each time you exercise you gain muscle tone, strength, flexibility, endurance and cardiovascular efficiency for complete conditioning.

The Super Circuit system consists of state-of-the-art equipment arranged in a scientifically based sequence.  Each machine, which can be adjusted to a person's height, exercises a specific muscle group and by riding a bicycle between stations exercises the cardiovascular system.  Going around the circuit from station to station exercises the who body.  The program should help you look and feel better regardless of you age or physical condition.
