What Our Members Are Saying About Us...

"I joined the Recreation Center in June of 2013 at which time I weighed about 300 pounds.  At my absolute heaviest I weighed 370 pounds and I have since lost over 175 pounds!  This weight loss was accomplished without the aid of surgery or medication; just diet and exercise and the help of Drexel University's Recreation Center.  I thank them for supplying the equipment and means which aided me in getting my life back!!"  
Jerome Wilson, Employee Member

"I'm a big fan of the Drexel Recreation Center.  It's conveniently located near my work so I am able to get a good workout in during my lunch break.  I love having the ability to use the squash and basketball courts to help mix up the workout options.  My co-workers and I try to get a few games of squash going every week which provides us with a fun, competitive way of staying in shape. With all of the different services available, I find that I am never bored, which is a problem I've experienced with other gyms!
Todd Kurpel, Corporate Member

"One of the best decisions I've ever made was joining the Drexel Recreation Center.  The state-of-the-art facility and equipment are beyond reproach.  The welcoming staff, personal trainers, and membership team have all made it possible for me to be myself as I try and become a healthier, more active and fit individual."
Tom Pugh, Employee Member

"My thing is triathlons and the Rec Center facilities are critical to my training and recovery- especially for Ironman distance races. As a disabled veteran, older than many here, I am still trying to take on new challenges and this facility allows me to do just that.  The Rec Center has high energy and supporting, friendly staff, offering a full range of equipment and training."
Norm Balchunas, Employee Member

"The Drexel Rec Center differs greatly from your 'typical gym'. I've previously belonged to token 'typical gyms' before and it is now apparent that they lack the academic component, the research led and evidence based approach that has gotten me results. I credit Chris, Nick, and the rest of Proactive Health team in helping me get healthier."
