BHCC’s Health and Wellness Center is a valuable resource for the entire campus. The LEED Gold-certified building houses the Athletics Department, Fitness Center, Gymnasium and locker rooms with showers, as well as a host of academic programs.
 
These facilities are open to faculty, staff and students. If you are trying to strengthen your muscles, improve your cardiac health, de-stress or lose weight, the BHCC Fitness Center is the place for you. Perhaps you want to play basketball with friends during Open Gymnasium or participate in a wellness workshop. The Health and Wellness Center has something for everyone.
