In case you haven’t driven down Wellborn in the past few years, you may not have noticed the space between Blue Bell Park and the Rec Center shrinking, but it has been! The Texas A&M Rec Center is finishing up an awesome expansion project that adds lots of new workout areas. I had the chance to photograph some of the new additions recently for the architects on the project, MarmonMok, and the changes are awesome! This is not your father’s workout facility!
I’m one of those people who’ve been around long enough to remember when there was only G. Rollie White, and if you wanted to work out there, you headed to the dungeon in the basement and slapped some rusted free weights, on an also pretty rusty bar, and did your thing! That was until Needum Steed came along and boy, what an upgrade we thought that was! Working out in there was like moving up in the world and feeling great just from your surroundings.
But both of those places are now gone, making way for the new Kyle Field renovations and the Davis Player Development Center, both of which are pretty inaccessible to the masses. The Texas A&M Rec Center which took the place of the old workout venues, but was severely cramped for space – until now!
With the changes, they have added basketball/volleyball courts, two very large activity rooms with great views of Blue Bell Park, a new lap pool, a HUGE weight room & workout areas looking out onto the west side of Kyle Field, and there’s even a 2nd floor terrace that’ll be very popular, especially on football game days!
