McComas, War Memorial Gyms closed until further notice

From: Recreational Sports

Given the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, McComas Gym and War Memorial Gym will close effective immediately. These are preventative measures that both Governor Ralph Northam and Virginia Tech are taking to prevent additional spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and to minimize health and safety risks to our students, staff and the Blacksburg community.

Staying fit and active is a great way to build a strong immune system and stay healthy. While our facilities are closed, we will continue to provide healthy exercise alternatives that encourage safe social distance. These opportunities include: 


  • Les Mills On Demand: 95 free digital home exercise classes across eight categories
  • Hokie Fit: Rec Sports online training program, which includes a free 2-week kickstart plan and exercise tutorial videos.

At this time, Cook Counseling Center and Schiffert Health Center remain open.


All questions and information is encouraged to be submitted to the Rec Sports business office, which remains open at McComas from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Submit by email ( or phone at 540-231-6856.
