The much-anticipated, new SAC gym was inaugurated on April 5, 2018 by the Director of IIT Bombay Prof. Devang Khakhar. Prof. P.M. Mujumdar, Deputy Director (Finance and External Affairs), Prof. Soumyo Mukherji, Dean (Student Affairs), Prof. B.V.S. Vishwanatham, Dean (Infrastructure Planning and Support) also graced the occasion.
It is one of the largest and most expensive projects the Institute Sports Council has ever undertaken. The second floor of the New Gymkhana building hosts the extravagant gym, well stacked with world-class equipment and facilities.
The gym houses amenities like a rowing machine, chest press, treadmills, four stack multi gym, elliptical cross trainer and an array of dumbbells.
The well-equipped, air-conditioned gym is spread over 5000 sq. ft. The facility has over 50 types of equipment in order to cater to every possible aspect of fitness.
Users will have access to professional gym trainers here. Personalised advise and tips will be available in a customised fitness app.
The gym will be equipped with bio-metric entries for improved access. The bio-metric access will also be linked to the ‘pay per class’ fitness initiative of the sports council, as well as with the other sports facilities in the Institute. The gym is a big step towards improving the fitness scenario for campus residents.
