UMBC has a 25 yard indoor pool (4'6" to 5'6") located in the Aquatics Center, that is great for lane sprints and aquatic calisthenics. Also located at the RAC is UMBC's Olympic-size outdoor pool (6' to 6'6"), for a strong lane-swim workout.

If you still can't decide, stop by the RAC to tour the other great options UMBC RecSports has to offer...compliment your cardio workout, including stairmasters and eliptical runners, with our indoor track and seven treadmills. Top off your workout with weight training in our 3,200 square foot weight room, or basketball on one of our three open basketball courts where playing a full-court game with other RAC patrons is just as easy as shooting around by yourself.
