With the Pepperdine Fitness Center opening its doors last spring and The Mountain project planned for the future, Director of Campus Recreation Robb Bolton said he’s confident campus health and fitness is in a good place. But not so long ago, in the depths of the Firestone Fieldhouse Weight Room, the mood wasn’t quite so bright.

Exercising remotely, whether through a Zoom class or a YouTube video, has become a popular alternative for individuals who want to keep up their personal health.
