HydroWorx Celebrates in Akron’s Endzone

Middletown, PA-The University of Akron football team will have another reason to celebrate in the Endzone, the aptly named player’s facility, with the arrival of two premier fitness pools from HydroWorx. The high-tech exercise spas will enhance the progressive sports medicine operation that supports the Zips championship athletic program.

Athletic training is an integral component of sports medicine at the University of Akron. The recent transition to an on-campus football practice facility and new field house in the InfoCision Stadium demonstrates the University’s commitment to student-athlete health care, safety and rapid rehabilitation. The selection of HydroWorx advanced technology Polar and ThermalPlunge pools serves to further elevate the high standards set by the Zips’ athletic program. Massage hoses and spa jets integrated into the pools allow trainers to work with athletes in the removal of lactic acid. The ability to target specific trigger points also helps to repair muscle break down and accelerates full muscle recovery. The additional equipment and technology inside Akron’s 3500-square foot sports medicine center positions the University as one of the most modern campuses in the Mid-Atlantic Conference and one of the best in the country.

The investment of $55 million into the InfoCision Stadium at Summa Field was part of a wider initiative at the University of Akron, called the “New Landscape for Learning” campus. This $300 million program included the construction of nine new buildings, extensive renovations and numerous capital improvements.
