Marshall Recreation Center unveils mobile application


The Recreation Center has released a mobile application for iPhone and Android users to stay connected with all aspects of campus recreation.

The app features schedules for classes, games and events happening at the Recreation Center. Users can add events to their calendars, set reminders and invite friends through social media sharing capabilities. Members can also book a personal trainer session, register for a fitness class and stream equipment orientation videos directly from the app.

Recreation Center officials say they hope the app will make it easier for users to stay updated with “Rec Alerts” – a feature that sends push notifications about important announcements.

“With Rec Alerts we can keep our members updated on any changes in our facility hours, such as early closings during football games, and announce any events coming up at the Recreation Center,” said Michele Muth, assistant director of marketing and memberships.

The Recreation Center’s annual Fitness Challenge will also be featured on the app, giving users the opportunity to view and update logs easily from their mobile devices.

The app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store and Google Play by searching Marshall Campus Recreation. For more information on the  Recreation Center, visit http://www.marshallcampusrec.com/.
