Strength & Conditioning Facilities

CSU-Pueblo boasts two outstanding strength and conditioning facilities on campus at CSU-Pueblo dedicated to training athletes.  Together they represent some of the most outstanding strength and conditioning facilities in all of Division II athletics. 

Strength & Conditioning Facilities at the ThunderBowl - Leomiti Warrior Center: 

After nearly 10 years since their first contribution to Colorado State University-Pueblo to reinstate the football program, the Friends of Football (FOF) came together to provide improvements for all 22 Pack Athletics programs. 

Named the Leomiti Warrior Center after Co-Defensive Coordinator Donnell Leomiti, a brand new 10,000-square foot weight room was opened in the Fall of 2016 at the Neta and Eddie DeRose ThunderBowl.

The majority of the project was privately funded with the cost around $3,300,000. More than 83 donors, both individuals and businesses, have committed monetary or in-kind donations.

The new weight room more than doubles the space of the old area and is utilized by all 550-plus student-athletes and coaches. The expansion features brand new equipment, which includes a large indoor turf area for speed and agility training. The weight room includes additional power racks and dumbbell benches, new Olympic lifting bars and bumpers, dumbbells, glute/ham benches and Keiser squat machines.

The roof of the new weight room features an observation deck to provide opportunities for special events and pre-game hospitality.

Strength & Conditioning Facilities at Massari Arena: The newly updated strength and conditioning facility in Massari Gymnasium is 1,839 square feet in size. This facility has four multi-station platforms that allow performance of the Olympic lifts, squats, front squats, bench press, incline press, pull-ups along with a variety of other exercises. In addition there is a squat rack, bench press station, dumbbells ranging from two lbs to 100 lbs and utility benches used for dumbbell training that can adjust from flat to incline. There are also a variety of medicine balls and bands to supplement the equipment already mentioned. This facility is used by the smaller roster teams that can efficiently train in a facility of this size.
