|Iverson Speed and Strength Center|
The University of Idaho’s commitment to its student-athletes can be seen in the continuing enhancement and growth of its athletic training, and strength and conditioning services – most notably the Norm and Becky Iverson Speed and Strength Center. The $3.3 million center was dedicated on April 30, 2004.
The floor-to-ceiling glass that fronts the building and extends down the sides provides a spacious view of Idaho's main campus. Inside, the Center is equipped with a full complement of strength-training equipment.
As much as it has everything a student-athlete needs to remain in top condition, it has the best in rehabilitation equipment. Among the most notable is a hydrotherapy pool, which features a floor that can be raised and lowered depending on the need at the time.
The 8,000-square-foot facility was opened for student-athlete use on March 19, 2004. It is approximately three times as large as the previous training facility and includes a 7,000-sq/ft first floor used for day-to-day strength and conditioning needs. It also includes a 1,000-sq/ft mezzanine level filled with cardiovascular equipment used for warm-up, conditioning and rehabilitation.
