Physical wellness is important to your overall Cardinal experience! Stay active by engaging in our selective intramural programs and fitness center.

Fitness Center and Facilities

The College’s fitness center offers students every tool they need to sculpt their ideal workout—free weights, squat racks, stability balls, benches, Life Fitness weight-lifting machines, treadmills, ellipticals, bikes and stair climbers. 

Looking for a pickup game in the gym, stairs to climb at the stadium or a field to toss around a ball? Students can always make use of our recreation facilities when not otherwise occupied by a scheduled event. For more information, please email

Around Town

With as much as we offer on campus, you’ll also want to make use of the valuable recreational resources in the Naperville community. Take a stroll or jog along the famed Riverwalk, a run or ride on the DuPage River Trail, a class with our partners at the YMCA, or a yoga session at a downtown fitness club. If you’re around for the summer, get in some laps at historic Centennial Beach. At North Central, staying fit isn’t a resolution—it’s a way of life.
