Mizzou Rec

MizzouRec offers plenty of options for the student body at work and at play. The MU Student Recreation Complex, the outdoor Stankowski Field area and other facilities provide students with ways to keep in shape, compete and relax. Mizzou’s extensive sports and competition programs include both intramural (RecSports) and extramural (Club Sports) competition.

The Jungle Gym fitness center can accommodate more than 300 people at a time for cardio, strength and conditioning work, while heavy lifting takes place in the Pump Room. Students and members can swim laps in the 50-meter pool and float down a lazy river in the Tiger Grotto. MizzouRec has facilities for virtually any sport or recreation activity imaginable.

Members get a unique workout experience in two specialized fitness spaces in Downtown Brewer. Stalcup's Garage is a functional training space equipped with kettlebells, medicine balls, resistance bands and more. Clark's Boxing Gym is inventive boxing-style conditioning training system that replicated the motions of a traditional boxing workout.

Locker rentals are available to all members, and can be purchased by semester or for the entire academic year. Space is available in both the general locker rooms and Rothwell Club, a private locker room with premium amenities.
