Best Check Yourself Before You Rec Yourself: Texas State University Student Recreation Center

Sure, you'll find a bevy of makeup-clad sororitybots on treadmills and bro-tank-wearing meatheads pumping iron, but the Texas State University Student Recreation Center's variety of workout equipment and group classes are steps ahead of San Marcos-area gym competition. Facilities include a boxing room and racquetball/handball/wallyball courts. (There are just so many ways to hit things legally here.) For the pacifists, the center also has a rock climbing wall, two pools, and a golf simulator. Longhorns, Rams, Aggies, Hilltoppers, and Roadrunners need not fret: Hook up with a Bobcat to be eligible for a guest day pass into the center.
