Known as the CHP, this is where you can work out, climb the rock walls, shoot some hoops, go for a swim and so much more. No matter how you like to exercise or stay active, we’ve got you covered. There is even an indoor track.

Hours of Operation

The CHP has set hours when classes are in session. Certain areas like the rock-climbing wall and the swimming pool have their own separate hours of operation. General hours also adjust when classes aren’t in session.

Workout Area/Indoor Track

You won’t find a larger workout area or better equipment anywhere in San Angelo.  Plus, you can watch TV while you exercise or just take in the panoramic view of campus through the wall of windows.

Climbing Wall

Everyone from experienced climbers to those who just think it looks like fun love our rock-climbing walls. Can you make it to the top without falling off? Sounds simple, but it’s quite a workout. Make sure you check the slightly different hours of operation.
