Campbell announces new strength facility

Campbell University Athletics has announced a new, state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility addition at Barker-Lane Stadium.

The nearly 6,000-square-foot facility, located in the southeast corner of Barker-Lane Stadium, home of the Camels’ football and women’s lacrosse programs, will feature 900 square feet of sport turf, 12 state-of-the-art custom Hammer Strength combo racks with inlaid Olympic lifting platforms, six glute hamstring developers and four Hammer Strength plate loaded machines.

The training facility will also include two Pit Shark belt squat machines, custom iron grip dumbbells, custom plyometric jumping boxes and a comprehensive nutrition and hydration station.

The new strength and conditioning center will house both Campbell’s football and women’s lacrosse programs, freeing space for the Camels’ other 19 NCAA Division I sports teams to train in the existing John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center weight room.

Construction of the facility began in September, and is expected to conclude in January 2015.
