FWC: ABOUT

The Free Weight Club boasts the largest membership of any P&S Club and is conveniently located in Bard Hall adjacent to the ballroom. Following recent total gym renovations, the FWC is filled with fresh weight-training and cardiovascular equipment. It is the ideal place to enhance your physique while blowing off the stress of Anatomy Lab and the wards. Governed by a democratic policy, all members contribute to the evolution of the club. With entertainment systems installed, you can exuberantly train a body that would make Frank Netter proud while taking in the aesthetics of the Hudson River at sunset. With 24-hour access through our password protected system, an evening lift in the foreground of the illuminated George Washington Bridge may be the catalyst to inspire the extra several hours needed studying the muscle groups you were destroying all night. We hope to see you on the platform soon!

Our facility is open to current CUMC students, faculty, and staff. You must have a Columbia ID to join. This facility is not open to the public. Membership fees are nominal compared to other NYC fitness clubs, and all funds are directed toward purchasing new equipment and making improvements to the gym.

Equipment featured in the FWC includes:

• Full set of dumbbells (5-140lbs)
• Brand new squat racks with 12ft customized FWC platforms 
• Treadmill 
• Multiple stationary bikes

• Several designated bench presses

• Extensive cable machine with supplemental attachments

• 24-hr access

• TV and stereo system

Our membership rules are listed on our waiver of liability, which is required for all members to sign.
