Gardner-Webb University now offers community memberships to Suttle Wellness Center and CrossFit classes and facilities. In addition, the Broyhill Adventure Course, located on Stadium Drive, is open to businesses, school groups and churches for leadership and team development, and to families for birthday parties.

Gardner-Webb is an officially licensed CrossFit affiliate and has three CF Level 1 trainers on staff.

The classes are open to all levels of fitness, according to Assistant Dean of Students Brian Arnold, who is a CF Level 1 trainer.

“Our CrossFit coaches have great modifications for all movements,” he said. “In addition, they are here to talk about technique and the overall purpose of the workout. CrossFit is all about community — a group of people meeting to work out and get fit. It’s a great chance to make new friends, whether they are students, faculty or staff, and now, members of the community.”

CrossFit classes are offered Monday through Thursday at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. Fridays classes are 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“Our coaches produce great outcomes in what they do with athletes in the gym that includes teaching movement, cueing corrections, and pushing athletes to improve,” Battista added. “The constantly varied workouts are proved to be effective, exciting, and addictive. The most rewarding part for coach and athlete is when the athlete accomplishes something that they never thought possible. It not only empowers them in the gym, but in life.”

The BAC is a unique outdoor adventure complex that offers a series of experiential challenges designed to enhance team building and personal growth. This course and the Indoor climbing wall in Tucker Student Center are also open to families for birthday parties.

Using a combination of high and low ropes activities, participants experience climbing and problem solving as metaphors for life whereby communication skills are improved, self-esteem is enhanced, problem solving techniques are applied, and cooperation in group and team situations is further developed.
