At Wilson High School we believe that exercise and overall fitness have a positive and direct impact on the education process. From our students to our teachers, coaches, and administrators, here at Wilson, we believe fitness is an essential ingredient to a high quality of life.
Due to the hard work of many fitness-minded people before us, Wilson CSD is lucky enough to have the state-of-the-art Charles R. Jufer Fitness and Athletic Center. Our fitness center offers competitive athletes, recreational users, and all Wilson Middle and High students the very best in strength and conditioning apparatus. Named after longtime Wilson teacher, coach, and administrator, Charlie Jufer. "Jufe" always made weight lifting and physical fitness a priority in his life and the athletes he worked with.
The fitness center offers a full array of Life Fitness strength training machines and free weights complemented by aerobic machines including upright and recumbent stationary bikes, treadmills, rowers, steppers and ellipticals. We even have four ceiling-mounted televisions that can be viewed anywhere in the fitness center to keep you "in the loop" while working out.
