Workout Center Information

The SUNY Geneseo Workout Center (WOC) is located on the lower level of the Merritt Athletic Center, next to the Ira S. Wilson Ice Rink. The center is open to current students, faculty and staff (including retired faculty and staff), their spouses, adult children (ages 18-22) and guests. All users of the WOC must have a paid membership or guest pass

For hours of operation and information on personal training and exercise classes, see the "Hours and Classes" section of the main menu.

The Workout Center does not use membership cards or photo IDs. We now utilize  a secured fingerprint scanner system. In addition to the convenience of not having to carry a card, this system also allows us to track the number of members and the times during which members use the Workout Center. The information collected allows us to determine peak hours of use and helps us adjust staffing requirements. Members will be scanned into the computer system when they register for membership.

To gain entry, members must  scan their right index finger, which will unlock the security gate to allow entry. Both rooms require members to scan in every time they enter each room of the Workout Center, even if they have already scanned earlier in the day.
