Demon Deacons are extremely active both inside and outside the Forest. Reynolds Gym and the Sutton Center are the hub for fitness and recreation on campus. Campus Rec offers workout spaces, intramural sports and club teams. Looking to get off campus? Outdoor Pursuits hosts outdoor adventure trips for all experience levels!
Come check out the brand-new Wake Forest Wellbeing Center. This renovated and expanded facility boasts state-of-the art cardio and weight equipment, as well as four gyms, four exercise studios, a pool and whirlpool, comfortable lounges and a climbing and bouldering wall. Campus also offers five acres of playing fields, over three miles of running trails, a disc golf course and outdoor basketball, tennis and sand volleyball courts. Campus Recreation has an extensive equipment checkout, including basketballs, tennis rackets, corn-hole and more. And when the family comes to visit, they can get a guest pass and join you!

In addition to state-of-the-art equipment, Campus Rec offers daily group fitness classes ranging from Zumba to yoga, as well as small-group training like TRX and HIIT. Personal trainers are also available right here in Reynolds Gym. All instructors and trainers are professionally certified and trained to give you the best fitness experience possible.

Most Deacons participate in at least one of several intramural sports offered each year.
Both recreational and competitive leagues are available, so you can have fun no matter how competitive (or noncompetitive) you may be, and championship T-shirts are prized possessions! Check it out at campusrec.wfu.edu/programs/intramural-sports.
Wish you could continue competing in your favorite sport here at Wake? You can! There are 35 club sport teams that compete against other universities. If we don’t currently field a team in your favorite sport, you can start your own club team. Learn more at campusrec.wfu.edu/programs/club-sports-here-at-wake.
