"Total Conditioning" best describes the ultimate goal of the Spartan Strength and Conditioning Program.
The year-round approach adhered to by the Spartans addresses all of the key areas of physical development and enhanced performance: speed and power improvement, increased overall strength, flexibility, agility, cardiorespiratory conditioning and endurance, skill specificity, and nutritional counseling and monitoring.
Attention also is continually given to the controllable factors in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Ongoing educational efforts, guidance, and counseling to assist the student-athletes with informed decision making during their athletic careers and throughout their adult lives are staples at Michigan State.
Student-athletes at MSU have access to first-class strength and conditioning facilities, including the newly remodeled weight room in the Duffy Daugherty Football Building. Increasing in size from 9,000 to 16,500 square feet, the weight room houses the very best strength and conditioning equipment on the market and is one of the elite training facilities in the nation after the renovation. The $2 million expansion and upgrade was completed in September 2008.
In addition to the weight room at the Duffy Daugherty Football Building, student-athletes also train at the weight and training facility at Jenison Field House. Recently expanded and improved, 40 machines and more than 3,000-square feet of space were added, making Jenison Field House a benchmark training facility for collegiate Olympic sports programs.
