UMO has got a beast of a gym on campus.

Fitness magazine, Men’s Health has compiled a list of the best college gyms. On that list was UMaine Orono! With a cost of $25 million, if was high of the list dubbed ‘The Coolest College Recreation Centers in America.’

The New Balance Student Recreation Center offers UMO students a verity of fitness fixes. Men’s Health cites the ‘hundreds of cardio machines or in one of four strength-training areas’ for the gym lovers. For waterbugs they give a nod to ‘the indoor aquatic complex boasts a 20-person hot tub, hot-water-jet bench seating, and a co-ed sauna.’ 

One of my favorite features on the New Balance Student Recreation Center is it’s cure for cabin fever. Men’s Health says ‘students can rent skis and snowshoes to enjoy 20 kilometers of groomed ski trails in the DeMeritt Forest that abuts the facility. (Those same trails can be used for running and mountain biking during warmer months.)’

Here are the 10 other schools that made the list:

  • Ohio State University
  • University of Arizona
  • California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Wabash College
  • Auburn University
  • University of Texas, Austin
  • University of South Dakota
  • University of Maryland
  • Colorado State University
