Located on the southern edge of our Ina Campus, the Wayne Arnold Recreational Center (The Rec) at Rend Lake College is your source for fitness & indoor sports training and clinics. Rent The Rec for your team practice, clinic, or party. The large stran-steel and brick building features a weight room, artificial-turf surface throughout, two retractable batting cages, pitching mounds, indoor tennis and basketball courts, videotaping and viewing room, an observation deck for parents and guests, locker rooms, restrooms and storage. Our all-weather Olympic running track is easy to access. We have everything from kettle bells to tractor tires to fit all training types. The weight room has 16 pieces of cardio equipment, 4 power racks, 3 sets of dumbbells, and plenty of medicine balls, ply boxes, and jump ropes. 

Recent additions include new FreeMotion stationary units, Precor treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent bikes, cable machines, and a new pickleball court and equipment. Proper workout clothing must be worn while engaging in activity. No jeans, work boots, or open-toed shoes.

The Rec serves as both an indoor training complex for Warrior and Lady Warrior intercollegiate athletic teams and a useful, much-needed facility to help promote community involvement by improving the quality of play by in-district youth and others.

Initial funding for this project comes from the Rend Lake College Foundation. Revenue generated from individual instruction and hitting/pitching clinics goes toward paying off the debt and the ongoing cost of operation.
