Fike Recreation Center Featuring Swann Fitness Center


Originally built in 1930 as the Clemson Field House, Fike Recreation Center is the main fitness building on Clemson's campus. Across its area of 250,000 sq ft., the Fike Recreation Center houses state of the art facilities including:


The Swann Fitness Center has approximately 15,000 sq ft. of fitness equipment, including a wide variety of cardio and strength equipment ranging from treadmills and stair climbers to dumbbells and barbells.


Patrons must be at least 10 years old to utilize cardio and pin–loaded weight equipment and 15 years old to utilize the free weight equipment.


For additional policies and procedures, please visit Campus Recreation's Policies and Procedures.

The concept of functional training is growing in popularity as the movements or exercises mimic our daily tasks so that those tasks may be performed better or efficiently. Functional training can help improve strength, power, speed, flexibility, muscular endurance, cardiovascular fitness, injury prevention, rehabilitation, posture and more.


The Functional Training Space is available for open recreation during all facility hours when there is not formal Group Fitness program occurring. To view the class schedule or to register for classes, please refer to the Group Fitness webpage.


For additional policies and procedures, please visit Campus Recreation's Policies and Procedures.

The 1/10 mile indoor track overlooks the main gym courts and provides a climate controlled atmosphere for an indoor walk, jog, or run.


The track direction alternates every day in order to prevent negative wear and tear on one side of the body more than the other. Patrons can refer to the posted signage for the day's designated direction. Child strollers are permitted on the track during non-peak hours as designated by Campus Recreation staff.

Located along the Upper Intramural fields, the 1/3 Mile Outdoor Track provides an outside paved track.
