Fitness Expo helps plan and equip the new 63,000-square-foot recreation center for Nicholls State University.

March 26, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

Creating a 63,000 square foot recreation center, with a 16 million dollar budget is no small task. For Nicholls State University, it just made sense for them to look up the best resource possible to help them plan and equip this project. That resource was Fitness Expo. This thirty year old business ran by Rodney Rice, 53 years old and president of Fitness Expo, has quickly become one of the leading fitness retailers in the country for consumers, health clubs and other commercial environments. Lending their expertise to the Nicholls State University, along as providing the equipment was a natural step in assuring the new facility was completed at the highest standards of excellence.

The Nicholls State University Recreation Center includes a 42-piece cardio room with an assortment of the high quality treadmills, exercise bikes and a variety of other fitness equipment from Fitness Expo. There are additional exercise rooms, a walking track, basketball courts, and a 6,000-square-foot weight room, which make this recreation center a hub for all fitness enthusiasts. This center is limited for the use of faculty, students and other staff and will ultimately produce an additional 70 jobs as well as create an income from sessions with personal trainers.

Fitness Expo, while being a crucial resource in assisting Nicholls State University with their new recreation center also provides hard to find, top quality fitness equipment such as elliptical machines, home gym equipment and weight lifting equipment. Along with providing top quality equipment, Fitness Expo also installs and maintains equipment for consumers and commercial clients. The family owned and operated business also consults with a variety of businesses for setting up their fitness centers and workout rooms.

The Fitness Expo website offers additional information including a blog filled with important information about fitness equipment and other relevant topics.

About Fitness Expo: The Rice family opened the first Fitness Expo showroom in 1980. Over the past thirty years, this fitness retailer has become one of the most trusted sources, not only for fitness equipment, but “everything fitness”. Helping establishments such as Nicholls State University create the best fitness resources, including consulting, planning and implementing fitness center plans is an example of one of the other highly sought services provided by Fitness Expo.
