The heart of the Sports Performance program is the new 12,500 square-foot Strength and Conditioning Center, located in the Jeffrey and Kimberly Yordon Center. The spacious new area has had an immediate impact on NIU programs as student-athletes train on new equipment with a variety of machines, as well as a four-lane sprint track. The Strength and Conditioning Center is large enough to enable NIU's professional strength and conditioning coaches to avoid scheduling conflicts while allowing space for warm-ups, plyometric exercises and speed and agility activities.
