Concluding our tour of UT Rec Sports Facilities away from the norm of Gregory Gymnasium, we take you off-campus to what is another workout room secret.
If you are willing to drive a little north.
The Commons Building at the Pickle Research Center is a quaint building that once again is populated mostly by elderly patrons, most of which work out at Pickle Research Center doing research or other work for the university.
There is a small weight room with a few cardio machines and a small dumbbell set for basic workout moves. There are also two table tennis tables and a nice air conditioned gym for basketball, volleyball and aerobics classes. There is also an open field for running and soccer for dedicated patrons during the extreme Texas weather.
Like Bellmont and Anna Hiss, PRC is low-key and not crowded. Parking is open for anybody with a UT permit.
To get there from campus, take I-35 and exit 183 North. Exit Burnet Road and turn right on Burnet. PRC is on your left across from Sonic.
So once again, if the crowd has you down at Gregory or even the Rec Center, find your way to PRC for some physical activity.
