Performing well in school, balancing a thriving social life, and maintaining a healthy diet plus exercise regimen—that’s the goal right? Though it sounds straight forward, it’s often difficult to juggle all the elements collegiate living has to throw at you. Thankfully, here at Cal, the RSF (Recreational Sports Facility) has all Berkeley students covered in regards to keeping active and healthy.
Nestled conveniently behind the Haas Pavilion, the RSF is UC Berkeley’s largest fitness center. The RSF spans an impressive 100,000 square feet, including an Olympic sized swimming pool, seven basketball courts, seven racquetball courts, three weight rooms, six squash courts, and plenty of workout equipment (treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, rowing machines, and stairmasters). In addition, the RSF also has space for group exercise classes, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, and martial arts. Best of all, the cost of using the facility is completely covered for Cal students—just swipe your ID card, and you’re in. It’s basically an exercise junkie’s paradise!
