Mark & Jason Squillante Strength and Conditioning Center
The crown jewel of the Hecht Athletic Center is the Mark & Jason Squillante Strength and Conditioning Center. Completed in 2001, the 11,500-square foot facility is more than double the size of the old weight room and features the latest in strength and conditioning equipment. It provides the focal point of Miami’s annual NFL Pro Timing Day each spring, and it is also used by dozens of NFL players who return to Coral Gables for their off-season workouts.
Totally refurbished in 2001 with a complete line of free weights and muscle-specific machines, the Hurricane weight room is complete with rubberized floor surfaces, stereo sound system, cooled water fountains and full-length mirror walls.
