MIT Strength and Conditioning

The MIT Strength and Conditioning program serves over 500 Varsity student-athletes yearly, and has seen tremendous growth over the past two years. The program currently has two certified staff members, who work with coaches to supervise workouts, design conditioning plans for teams and individuals, and promote higher performance through training safely and effectively.

The Rudovsky Varsity Weight Room is a facility reserved for training Varsity athletes, and was refurbished with a generous endowment gift three years ago, the result of which has been higher levels of conditioning and lifting performance.  The Varsity Weight Room is run by the Strength and Conditioning staff, and serves 25 of the Institution's 33 Varsity programs, both at the Division I and Division III level. Eleven programs also currently use the Strength and Conditioning staff to run optional off-season conditioning workouts for their team, including interval and circuit training, as well as pool prehab workouts for recovery and injury prevention.

The MIT Strength and Conditioning staff are both Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists (CSCS), with training and certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association. The CSCS is the highest level of certification offered by the NSCA, and allows the staff to develop programs not just for performance, but for injury prevention, nutrition, and other goals presented by student-athletes.
