The Bernhardt Wellness Center serves as a facility for the betterment of both the Columbus faculty and the student body. This state-of-the-art facility offers 30 pieces of cardiovascular equipment and 30 pieces resistance training machines in addition to free weights. Columbus models itself as a college preparatory school and as such we provide a facility for the general student body. Prior to the Bernhardt Wellness Center, students who weren't involved in Columbus athletics needed to pay for a commercial gym.
The wellness center is utilized before, during and after school. During the school day, team sports and fitness classes use the facility in order to instruct students on proper exercise form. The facility has "open gym" hours both before and after school. Students can participate in supervised exercise during the hours of 6:30- 7:45 AM and from dismissal until 5 PM. It is a place where students can socialize and improve their health without ever leaving the campus.
