Membership

To have full access to Campus Recreation services, you must be a Coppin student, faculty, or staff member with a current Eagle Card or a community member with a Campus Recreation membership card.

Students and Campus Recreation members may check out equipment with a current Eagle Card ID or membership card. Show your ID card at the Equipment Desk on the 1st floor of the PEC, next to the pool.

Members can claim and report items in the Lost and Found. Our staff keep all items in Lost and Found for 2 weeks, and then we either discard or donate them.

Any items of significant value (i.e. jewelry, wallet, etc.), we immediately take to Campus Police.

Campus Recreation is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. We encourage all members and guests to secure all valuables and belongings before entering any recreation or wellness areas.

Every member and guest must show an ID card, membership card, or guest pass to use Campus Recreation facilities. When you present your ID at the front desk, you will get a wristband to wear.

Members and guests must put on wristbands within view of front desk staff, and keep them on while using the facilities.

Please note that the wristbands use a hypoallergenic adhesive. If you are concerned about skin irritation from the wristbands, please purchase a sweat band to wear on your wrist and place the wristband around it.

Wearing a wristband identifies you to the Campus Recreation staff as being a valid member of the Coppin State University community or a guest thereof, and allows you to use the facilities. Wristband checks are used to ensure that only members of the Coppin State University community, and their guests, are using the facilities.

If you use the Campus Recreation facilities and do not wear a wristband, you will be asked to please return to the front desk to receive a wristband in order to continue using the facilities.

Make Wellness Your Lifestyle

Physical exercise is only part of the equation when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. We know, at times, your college experience may get stressful. We've got programs and activities to help you practice and create some healthy habits you'll be able to use long after you graduate. 

Lunch "n" Learns are seminars where we bring in health and wellness professionals to speak on a variety of health, wellness, and fitness topics. Past topics include: 

  • Proper nutrition
  • Cardiovascular risk factors
  • Safe exercise practices
  • Stress management
  • Desk stretches
  • Ergonomic tips for your work space

Don't see a topic you want to learn more about? Reach out to us and let us know! We're always looking for suggestions.

Come to our cooking demonstrations and leave with healthy recipes, and the knowledge of how to shop for and prepare healthy meals. You might even get to sample foods prepared by a personal chef!

Massages can be a great tool to help you relax, relieve stress, and reduce muscle tension—especially during midterms and finals. We bring in certified professional massage therapists to provide 10-minute chair massages to our Coppin community. Make sure to schedule yours when they happen!

During Wellness Week, we focus on health and wellness with a different theme each day. 

Campus Recreation is more than just sports and athletics. Our wellness and fitness programs are available to any current student, faculty, and staff member who wants to stay fit physically, and be well mentally.

Sunday: 3:00 pm - 8:00pm

The Fitness Center regularly hosts group exercise classes, individualized and personal programs, as well as special events. We're always updating the schedule and adding new opportunities to get involved, and stay active.

Designed for anyone and every body at all fitness levels, our group fitness classes offer something for everyone. Recent classes include Zumba, cardio, and strength training.

Interested in running, but not sure where to start? Join this training program designed to motivate and prepare you to run your first 5K or improve your running time for your next 5K.

Walking regularly can lower stress levels, improve concentration, and help prevent fatigue and injury. This group is for people who enjoy walking, and want to walk more frequently, and also for anyone interested in getting started.

You have health and fitness goals. We want to help you achieve them. We work 1-on-1 with students, staff, faculty, and local community residents to identify, prioritize, and achieve health, fitness, and wellness goals.

Before starting any exercise or fitness program, it's helpful to know your baseline. Establishing a baseline means you are measuring the starting point of any process so you can track growth or improvement.

Our fitness team members conduct fitness assessments to establish your starting point for:

  • cardiovascular fitness
  • muscular strength
  • endurance
  • flexibility
  • body composition
  • circumference
  • height
  • weight
  • blood pressure
  • heart rate

The goal of the WOW program is to help women become comfortable and familiar with using free weight, and experience benefits of strength training.  To get the most out of the program, we recommend participants attend all sessions.

Whether it's your first time in a gym, or your first time back in a while, you might benefit from an introduction to fitness equipment. During this orientation, a fitness team member takes you on a guided tour of the facility, and helps you get familiar with the cardio and strength training equipment, as well as free weights.

Open to any current Coppin student, this program includes personal development trainings around fitness, personal training, and group exercise.

Based on the hit tv show, this campus program gets faculty and staff excited and motivated to lead healthy lifestyles.

Classes aren't the only thing we offer at the Fitness Center! We also host special campus-wide and community events throughout the academic year:

  • Campus Recreation's 5K Run
  • Cardio Fitness Challenge
  • FIT Campus Student Challenge
  • Campus Recreation's Fitness Triathlon
  • RecQuestBall Tournaments
  • Halloween Zumba Party
  • Christmas Fitness Event

Recreation and wellness at Coppin is more than just sports and athletics. Our wellness and fitness programs are available to any current student, faculty, and staff member who wants to stay fit physically, and be well mentally.

Club Sports

Club sports are for any student who wants to join a sport to play competitively with peers and friends, or learn something new! You don't need previous experience to play club sports—club sports are not varsity athletics.

Why join a club sport?

They can be a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and have fun while staying healthy! You might even learn things you can use in a professional setting, like leading a team, making informed decisions, and resolving conflicts.
