Strength and Conditioning

The goal of West Virginia’s strength and conditioning program is to build the total student-athlete in body and mind. Properly conditioned athletes are healthy athletes and less prone to injury. WVU’s strength coaches are outstanding teachers and emphasize safety, technique and nutrition. All athletic weight rooms are equipped with the latest technology to produce fine-tuned athletes who know that championships are won by those who embrace hard work and have the discipline to tolerate discomfort.
