Pratt Fitness and Recreation Center

The state-of-the-art Pratt Fitness and Recreation Center provides LIU Post students with a modern facility where they can exercise, play, compete, or work out. From high-action basketball games to leisurely laps in an eight-lane swimming pool, the $18.5-million center, gifted by Jeanette and Edmund T. Pratt, Jr.,  is outfitted for a variety of recreational, intramural, and competitive activities and sports. The 77,000-square-foot facility contains a modern 3,000-seat gymnasium with three full-size basketball courts, as well as volleyball, racquetball, and badminton courts; an elevated Mondo-X indoor jogging track; an eight-lane competitive-size swimming pool; a fitness room that features free weights and the latest exercise equipment, including treadmills, stationary bicycles, and stair climbers; a multipurpose room that hosts classes in aerobics, dance, and exercise; and locker rooms. It also features an ultramodern Human Performance Lab and “smart classrooms” for use by the health and physical education programs. The Pratt Fitness and Recreation Center is located in our athletics complex, next to the football field and field house.  

Personal fitness training is also available free of charge! Call 516-299-4060 or email Martin.Guillet@liu.edu for more information.
