Nicholls State University Partners with Rodney Rice of Fitness Expo

Nicholls State University partnered with Fitness Expo for the planning and implementation of world-class cardio equipment for their new 63,000-square-foot recreation center.

Students, staff and faculty members are some of the healthiest in the country due to the physical fitness amenities offered at the Nicholls State University Recreation Center. This state of the art center features 6,000-square-foot weight room, 42-piece cardio room, walking tracks, basketball courts and more areas for people to pursue physical fitness including sessions with personal trainers and events such as yoga and Pilates. There is also state of the art fitness equipment including elliptical machines, weight benches, treadmills, bikes and a variety of other items. Attaining this scope of quality for the space and the equipment wouldn't have been possible without Fitness Expo.

Rodney Rice, 53 years old and president of Fitness Expo, along with three generations of the Rice family and well-trained team members devoted their time, expertise and equipment procurement to assist the Nicholls State University with this $16 million project. The outcome is a facility that rivals any other state college. This would not have been possible without the expertise in planning, design and equipment of Fitness Expo.

While the Nicholls State University Recreation Center was a tremendous project that bears testament to the finesse of Fitness Expo in creating the best in fitness centers, this fitness equipment retailer is also known for providing high quality, difficult to find equipment for the general public as well.
