The weight room is an 11,200-square foot training facility which includes free weights, weight machines, cardio equipment and is complete with a mixing room for better distribution of nutritional supplementation.
The strength center is one of the finest training facilities in college athletics. The facility features 14 multi-purpose platform/combo racks with bench, incline, squat, and pull-up capabilities. Each platform contains full sets of customized Eleiko training plates. There is also an array of Hammer Strength, York Barbell, Bodymaster, and Powerlift training machines. The facility also has two sets of dumbbells ranging from five to 125lbs.
The Golden Knights are constantly working on their speed, quickness, and endurance training with over six specialized speed training devices. With the excellent weather in Florida, the Golden Knights take advantage of training on one of five practice fields or running track, both with quick and convenient access located behind the Wayne Densch Sports Center.
