Hidden Gems @ Stout Comic Series I: Health & Fitness Center

Logan Glaser/ Stoutonia

Hidden Gems @ Stout is a comic series created by Stoutonia’s very own Illustrator, Abby Borash, and is intended to showcase locations around campus for students looking to expand their knowledge on what University of Wisconsin-Stout’s campus has to offer. 

Abby will be creating and commenting on the locations by drawing—literally and figuratively—from her own experiences as a Stout student. She hopes to inspire other students to branch out from their daily routines and make the best of campus facilities. 

We aim to post a new location on a weekly basis. Towards the end of the semester, we will ask students to vote on their favorite location. Follow us on Instagram (stoutoniaonline) to check in with the latest!

When I found out that the Health & Fitness center in the Johnson Fieldhouse was free of charge for students this year, I felt as if I had no excuse to not exercise. I’m a runner, so arm-day is nonexistent in my world. This is simply how my arms feel about upper-body workouts. 

Located on the bottom level of the Johnson Fieldhouse, the Health & Fitness center offers a multitude of various exercise equipment. However, a reservation must be made to enter. Stop by to have the staff show you how to book a time and get exercising! 

Don’t forget: Masks are required to be worn even though you might sweat right through them.
