Director of Strength/Fitness Center

The Lou Parberry Strength Center is 4,100 square foot, state of the art training facility centrally located inside the Carver Academic Facility.

Parberry underwent a comprehensive upgrade as part of the Carver Academic Facility renovations, which were completed in Fall 2017. The room was designed by the Strength & Conditioning staff to support the varied training needs of all 15 varsity teams at WWU. The centerpieces of the facility are 8 power racks equipped with resistance bands, chains, roller pads, adjustable benches, bumper plates, band pegs, velocity and power-measuring devices through a partnership with the Kinesiology department, and in-ground hardwood platforms. Other equipment includes cable machines, a full stable of specialty bars, belt squat machine, leg press, posterior chain developers, a large range of dumbbells, kettlebells, and medicine balls, and multiple cardiovascular options, among other features. 

The facility is limited to varsity athletics use, with faculty and Physical Education classes permitted during assigned timeslots only. Student-athlete training sessions are supervised by the WWU Strength & Conditioning staff and/or varsity sport coaches who hold one or more NCAA approved strength & conditioning certifications.
