Stay Healthy, Work out, and Take Group Fitness Classes

The NHTI Fitness and Recreation Department provides wellness opportunities through activities, events, classes, and our on-campus fitness facilities to get and stay healthy and happy in a friendly, comfortable environment.

We strive to enhance mental, physical, and emotional well-being while giving you the opportunity to explore your own preferences and activities.

Indoor Facilities

The Dr. Goldie Crocker Wellness Center has a weight room and cardiovascular exercise multi-purpose room in addition to our gymnasium, which has a full-length basketball court with six baskets and bleachers. We have an athletic training area and locker rooms for our robust intercollegiate sports program as well as our recreational and special events.

The Wellness Center is open to NHTI students, staff, faculty, and employees of CCSNH. Alumni can use the facilities for $25 per semester. Contact Laura Scott, alumni director, at lascott@ccsnh.edu.

What do I need to use the gym or fitness center?

Outdoor Facilities

Group Fitness

We proudly offer free group fitness classes as part of your tuition at NHTI! Suggestions for different types of classes are always welcome.

Pickle Ball is a quick, fast-paced paddle sport for all ages. It can be played as singles or doubles and is easy for beginners to learn. It combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.

We host indoor soccer in our gymnasium all year long and are willing to facilitate an organized league at the local Fieldhouse Sports Facility. The Wellness Department helps to support this organizationally and financially.

Dodgeball is a fun and energetic activity, and we encourage both individual games and multi-game tournaments! NHTI students from various clubs, organizations, and residence halls have created friendly, fun competition within our community.

The Caccia Student Center provides a comfortable, student-friendly space to connect with each other, do homework, play ping-pong, billiards, or board games, and just hang out and watch TV.

Special Events

You’re invited to hit the links with our Lynx golfers in our recreational golf scramble held in Concord. The scramble is made up of teams of 4 playing 9 holes. A minimal fee is charged and covers pre-game drinks, post-game awards, and use of the driving range and a golf cart.

Every September, we hold a wiffleball tournament to benefit a cause. To find out more please contact Kaitlin Moody, director of student life.

In November, we hold our Annual Wheelchair Basketball Game, which raises funds for the Zech DeVits Memorial Equipment Fund to provide NHTI students access to assistive technologies and equipment. Multiple short games are played, and raffle and concession proceeds are donated to the cause.

Each semester, we host glow bowling night at Merrimack Ten Pin to help you have fun and relieve stress before finals. No experience required – and black light-sensitive clothing is encouraged!

This is a collaborative effort to encourage healthy eating, active exercise, stress reduction, and overall improved awareness of your well being to make positive lifestyle changes. This 8-week challenge includes accountability partners, check-ins, raffles, prizes and more!

This April event is held on the NHTI campus to benefit the Jennifer Kemp Memorial Scholarship Fund. The NHTI/NEDD 5K is part of the Capital Area Race Series and a popular race in the area. The race always starts at 6 p.m. on a Friday and is immediately followed by a kid’s fun run, awards ceremony, food and festivities.
