Stafford Campus Fitness Room

All UMW faculty, staff and spouses are permitted to use the Stafford Campus Staff & Faculty Fitness Room.  The Fitness Room is located in Room 107 of the South Building of the Stafford Campus and contains a treadmill, two elliptical machines, a small dumbbell set, jump ropes, weight bands, and a step platform.  The Fitness Room provides faculty and staff who work predominantly at the Stafford Campus an easier opportunity to access state of the art exercise equipment free of charge and supports the university’s goal of providing the campus community with “opportunities to adopt healthy and well-balanced lifestyles through programming and resources and to foster an environment in which the university community can grow in their overall health and wellness.”  Hours of operation coincide with the building hours for the Stafford Campus.  To gain access and be eligible to use the fitness room, all individuals must first sign a liability waiver. To obtain the liability waiver, please contact Kevin Caffrey at 540-286-8008 or via email at kcaffrey@umw.edu.

The idea for a fitness room at the Stafford Campus originated in a Staff Advisory Council meeting several years ago, serving as a great reminder of the advantage of having a Staff Advisory Council that “provides an avenue for employee input and feedback and a means of participating in the design, development, and implementation of University programs, projects, and services.”  Meetings of the Council are open to employees, students, and the public.
