Wellness Center

Rendition of the Bethel Wellness Center

Bethel strives to develop whole and holy persons—not just mentally, socially, and spiritually—but also physically. The state-of-the-art Wellness Center helps our community do just that—giving students the space to exercise regularly and our expanding exercise science program the tools it needs to develop skilled professionals for careers in health and wellness.

The Wellness Center also helps Bethel better compete with similar universities, providing a key recruitment tool for undergraduate students.

The Need

Before the Wellness Center, fitness facilities were limited and used primarily by athletics teams. Most students used off-campus fitness centers at their own expense, lessening the on-campus community experience.

  • Provides space for strength training and conditioning for student athletes
  • Offers expanded exercise opportunities to all students
  • Provides much-needed space for the growing biokinetics program
  • Greater sense of community
  • Conveniently located in the center of campus


  • 22,500 square feet on 3 levels

  • 5,500 square feet of biokinetics testing and lab space
