The price for what you get is actually affordable. How many facilities have racquetball courts, basketball courts, indoor soccer and as much as equipment as the ARC for under $30/month? If you like dinky gyms, then go ahead and pay $10 a month, but most people like to play sports and the ARC gives you the opportunity to do that as well as get a traditional workout in. Lastly, you can't compare Berkeley's gym to the ARC. They don't have nearly the amount of square footage or as nice equipment as the ARC. I wouldn't pay a dime over $10 to use their facility. --["Users/Corleone"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2013-11-04 15:38:59CorleoneComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 331: </td> <td> Line 331: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2013-11-04 14:38:59'' [[nbsp]] a --["Users/Corleone"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2013-08-08 17:39:31exTexComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 329: </td> <td> Line 329: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2013-08-08 17:39:31'' [[nbsp]] The ARC is definitely not cheap like others have suggested. Its $40/month. As a previous resident of a city with few gym options, this price is outrageous. A chain gym (planet fitness) will run you $10 a month. Even the local small time gym in my town back home was only $10/month. This $40 doesn't get you a bigger gym. The cardio and weight lifting area is smaller than what you would find at a planet fitness. Some would say that the hours of business justifies the $40...I don't. This place gets so crowded its like they have limited hours. For staff or grad students, its just inconvenient to not be able to go to this gym after 5pm. Good luck trying to lift weights here after 5 pm. Its impossible and the small area for weights means that you get lines of people next to you as you go about your sets. Is it really necessary to have an indoor track and basketball courts at the cost of actual gym space? $40 doesn't get you free access to the rock wall, towel service, or classes. Lastly, compared to the price Berkeley students pay,($10) I have to ask why Davis charges 4x as much. The profits must be going to other services or Davis got a ridiculously bad financing rate for this building. --["Users/exTex"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2013-06-27 11:20:45hankim(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 328: </td> <td> Line 328: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * It gets busy then because that's when free parking starts. --["Users/hankim"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2013-06-27 10:05:59JPVolksComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 326: </td> <td> Line 326: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2013-06-27 10:05:59'' [[nbsp]] This is a great Gym if you go early in the day, and cheap too. I usually try to go before 9 am which seems to be the least busy time. The evenings seem to get crazy busy through 10-11 pm. There are a lot of characters at this place too which is always kind of funny, the lady that only does the smith machine for all exercises in the morning, the old guy who reads the paper and just sits on the machines, and some lady who wears huge dark sunglasses and a hat like she is in witness protection. Most of the people though are just there to workout though and are cool.

Every time I go to the second floor I don't see a lot of people using them. --["Users/SimonFung"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2005-11-10 15:37:49'' [[nbsp]] The ARC is the least student-friendly place on campus, in my experience. They don't allow outside organization to post flyers (presumably because it might mess with their image). They used to charge ["student organizations"] to reserve rooms when it first opened. They actually billed ["ASUCD Senate"] for holding a meeting there, because they are technically a campus department (though they are obviously a student organization too). Lockers in the ["Rec Hall"] used to be free, but now they charge a monthly fee. And you can't go to the ARC during the summer if you aren't taking classes. I don't know who they think they are catering to, but it certainly isn't the students who ["FACE Initiative" paid] to build the place. --["Users/BrentLaabs"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-03-18 23:19:38'' [[nbsp]] I think they've closed the old weight room in the Rec Hall. There had been a sign saying it was closing March 11 I think. --["Users/BenWebber"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-04-03 18:52:10'' [[nbsp]] This week, the Arc has a "try before you buy" promotion, but it only extends to faculty and staff, not alumni. Alumni can BUY the membership, but they can't "try" the place - insane when you think about how it was the alumnis fees that helped pay for this building. --["Users/RohiniJasavala"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-04-05 00:02:08'' [[nbsp]] Um, wrong Rphini, I am an alum and they let me in today. Get your facts straight. --["Users/DavisLurker"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-04-09 05:40:50'' [[nbsp]] The Arc is a great place to go work out and have fun. I really want to point out something to the current students and those who are going to go to school here in the summer and fall 06: The weigh room is full of posers, just like The city of Davis. Guys: some don't know "Richard" about working out but coming in with a f-face like "i'm cool, look at me". Girls: please don't put make up on? please don't show off your Laffy Taffy. Guys won't get a boner because your workout pants. One more thing, if you are coming in with a bitchy attitude, please go see a DR. People don't give a crap if you are big or a lot of meat, people would think that you are an oily meat-head. Please don't show off your muscles in front of the ladies, they probably won't think about it after they got off that machine. Oh, more to add. Please don't enjoy yourself in front of the mirror more than 3 seconds, we know you love yourself so much. --["Users/DingLiu"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-05-03 11:22:09'' [[nbsp]] Although I'm not as bitter as Ding about the "ARCers", I do think it's really funny to see the dudes trying to do themselves in the mirror after each set. And you forgot to mention those girls who take a machine for 1 hour because they're reading a Nicholas Sparks novel and moving at the pace of an arthritic 90 year old woman. Plus the weight room always smells like feet and bad cologne. Nevertheless, I love the ARC! --["Users/JonathanVillavert"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-06-02 01:24:57'' [[nbsp]] Well, if you are that bitter about the general ARC-using population, I'd suggest coming to the rock wall there.

They also could use a neck machine. If you don't go during the busy times, it's pretty easy to get in a good workout. The pick-up basketball can be hit-or-miss. Usually there's either too many or not enough people. Playing basketball with undergrads brings out the worst in me anyway, so I'm probably better off. --["Users/MisterProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-07-22 20:15:14'' [[nbsp]] The summer hours fucking suck =[ --["Users/MikeAhmadi"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-08-09 03:34:58'' [[nbsp]] is there really a starbucks in the arc? --["Users/JoeRunnels"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-10-18 23:20:20'' [[nbsp]] There is a coffee shop in the ARC, to the left as you walk in I think. The ARC is a nice place, often-times packed. It is best you go in with a plan if your going to use the weight room. No what you want to do so you don't kind of walk aimlessley around while waiting for 2-3 different spots to open up. Staff is friendly and helpful and overall people are courteous and easy to talk to. A great place if your serious about being healthy, staying in shape, or getting that killer body you always wanted. --["Users/FrankYoung"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-10-18 23:20:59'' [[nbsp]] "know what you want to do" -&gt; Correction concerning earlier post. --["Users/FrankYoung"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-12-08 19:02:46'' [[nbsp]] The pickup basketball games are good but people are big time babies. I come from a city where there is no such thing as "foul" and people at the Arc call it very often. The irony is that the people that call foul are typically taller and bigger...other than that I love the arc. --["Users/GregWebb"]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-10-02 18:55:02sososharpFormat changng. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 331: </td> <td> Line 331: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> *@RichardNichols If your girlfriend is already a member, and hasn't sponsored anybody else for membership, then she can sponsor you for membership at the same price as alumni/staff (340/year, 85/quarter). </td> <td> <span>+ </span> *<span>&nbsp;</span>@RichardNichols If your girlfriend is already a member, and hasn't sponsored anybody else for membership, then she can sponsor you for membership at the same price as alumni/staff (340/year, 85/quarter).<span>&nbsp;-- ["Users/sosharp"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-10-02 18:51:13sososharpAnswering some questions. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 324: </td> <td> Line 324: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + * It costs 45 dollars for one quarter. -- ["Users/sososharp"]</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 329: </td> <td> Line 331: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ *@RichardNichols If your girlfriend is already a member, and hasn't sponsored anybody else for membership, then she can sponsor you for membership at the same price as alumni/staff (340/year, 85/quarter).</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-09-25 11:52:03JoePomidor(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 328: </td> <td> Line 328: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * Check out [http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=c7bdd950-0ca4-4446-8adc-404445bc8d5a this link.] It looks like you would pay 120/quarter, plus 50/yr CAAA membership. --["Users/JoePomidor"] </td> <td> <span>+</span> * Check out [http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=c7bdd950-0ca4-4446-8adc-404445bc8d5a this link.] It looks like you would pay 120/quarter<span>, or 430/yr, or 38.53/mo</span>, plus 50/yr CAAA membership. --["Users/JoePomidor"] </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-09-25 11:50:58JoePomidor <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 328: </td> <td> Line 328: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * Check out [http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/cms/internal.aspx?uid=c7bdd950-0ca4-4446-8adc-404445bc8d5a this link.] It looks like you would pay 120/quarter, plus 50/yr CAAA membership. --["Users/JoePomidor"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-09-25 11:33:10RichardNicholsComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 326: </td> <td> Line 326: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-09-25 11:33:10'' [[nbsp]] I couldn't quite gather from the main article...

The employee let it go after the man explained to her it was made out of the same material as most athletic shorts. I find this to be a dumb reason to try and kick someone out for (nowhere else have I seen a person get kicked out for wearing jeans or cargo shorts). What's even more ridiculous is that a few weeks ago, some idiot on the squat rack decided to unrack all the weights on one side while leaving about 100 pounds on the other side and needless to say the Olympic bar tipped over and nearly hit the guy in the power cage next to the rack. The bar missed him by less than a foot. Of course, the idiot did not even get a talking to and lucky for him, the guy who nearly got hit was a good sport about it (I would have clocked the moron). So basically, the ARC kicks out people for wearing jeans and cargo shorts while leaving alone the people who are a safety hazard. --["Users/hankim"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-08-19 15:36:53browneyedbluesComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 313: </td> <td> Line 313: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-08-19 15:36:53'' [[nbsp]] Best gym in town - hands down.

For replacing the leather on various machines, plenty of other gyms that I have been to allowed jeans/cargo shorts and I am sure those gyms worried about costs as well, but banning clothing items that are not dangerous would be a disservice to paying customers. Same with chalk (although I have seen chalk on the Olympic bars quite a few times). Yes, the ARC might be a source of revenue for the university, but so are all the gyms out there that charge less or provide more services for the same price without forcing over twenty thousand students to pay maybe up to $400 a year (which does not even cover the summer months). And I cited 24 Hour Fitness because a membership at one of their high end clubs (pool, sauna, hot tub, and all that jazz) costs less than four hundred dollars a year (and you do get summer months) and much less when they have their sales, which is quite often. Hell, you can even haggle with them when they are not having sales and get a significant amount knocked off. --["Users/hankim"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-03-30 19:39:48sososharpComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 294: </td> <td> Line 294: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-03-30 19:39:48'' [[nbsp]] Olivia,<br> + <br> + Like I said, I don't know the whole story.

Personally, I would rather have towel service eliminated at the ARC than lose professors, classes, TAs, and all of the other things that make this a great academic institution. The ARC is actually a fantastic health club, and you get to use it for a price unheard of in the real world. Go check out the prices at any commercial health club and see if the ARC seems expensive then.<br> + <br> + If you DO want better services at the ARC, and elsewhere, there are a number of alternatives you can pursue. For example, money to build and fund various facilities and activities on campus often comes from student initiatives through ASUCD. If enough undergrads vote for it, you can raise everyone's student fees to fund whatever it is you want funded. Alternatively, you could write to the CA legislature and governor and advocate a small statewide tax increase. Providing the state with an income sufficient to PAY for services is a good way to actually OBTAIN services. (A very small increase would completely wipe out the UC budget shortfall that the Governor imposed last year.) Or, you can advocate cutting services elsewhere. What would you trade off for better towel service and free cycling classes? --["Users/IDoNotExist"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-02-17 20:13:42hankim(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 238: </td> <td> Line 238: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * Which is why I believe we need more transparency and accountability, not more money from Sacramento. --["Users/hankim"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-02-17 20:07:22OliviaY <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 237: </td> <td> Line 237: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ *True but if you look up the breakdown of student fees each year (available online if you google it) you can see the amount going up.

It's very disappointing. Not to mention that the money seems to be going into buying more TV's and "entertainment" geared machines. TV's that are hanging from the ceiling are VERY distracting to me. I used to enjoy working out in the upstairs areas on ellipticals because they didn't have them. Now it is very challenging to get into a "zone" without being distracted every five minutes by something colorful in my line of site.<br> + <br> + My freshmen year classes like cycling were included in the student fees and did not cost extra. I prefer the ARC as it was then and everyone I've spoken to in my cycling classes agree :-( Plus now you have to show up at least 15-30 minutes early to even get in (depending on the class/time of day). Why buy a 45+ dollar pass if you can't even get into the class without showing up VERY early? Students and worse working professionals don't have that much time to spend at the gym. Such a waste of money and student fees. Blech.<br> + <br> + In short: quality of service has gone down while the pricing has gone up.

It's definitely annoying since I wasn't able to do much with jerks rushing me when I was just trying out a machine and complaining that I wasn't doing it right. --["Users/efong"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2010-01-15 17:21:43dornbiker <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 10: </td> <td> Line 10: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Finals Week Hours (June 8 - 14)'''||<br> - ||Mon-Fri (June 8 - 12) 6am-10pm||<br> - ||Sat (June 13) 7am-8pm ||<br> - ||Sun (June 14) 7am-8pm ||<br> - ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Summer Hours (begin June 15, 2009)'''||<br> - ||Mon-Fri 6am-10pm||<br> - ||Sat-Sun 9am-9pm||</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 21: </td> <td> Line 14: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/<span>ARC</span>/ind<span>ex.php</span> ARC]|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||[http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/<span>cms</span>/in<span>ternal.aspx?ui</span>d<span>=53cfd021-fd52-452c-bbc3-f54553db2d09</span> ARC]|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2009-12-11 16:53:54dornbiker <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 37: </td> <td> Line 37: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Although there is no pool on site at the ARC, your ARC membership allows you free access to the ["Hickey Pool"] located right near the MU. </td> <td> <span>+</span> Although there is no pool on site at the ARC, your ARC membership allows you free access to the ["Hickey Pool"] located right near the MU<span>&nbsp;and ["Recreation Pool"]</span>. </td> </tr> </table> </div> Activities and Recreation Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Activities_and_Recreation_Center2009-12-06 13:52:11hankim(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Activities and Recreation Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 231: </td> <td> Line 231: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * I never understood the problem with wearing jeans in the weight room.

Also, any other gym that costs about three hundred dollars a year allows chalk and these are the gyms open 24/7. I am pretty sure the ARC charges at least this much and they force all students to pay for it.

There are a few meat-heads who make a lot of noise (almost yelling) when working out, as well as a few disabled and elderly lifters who put the rest of us to shame in terms of fitness and determination. The UCDFD also comes in sometimes.<br> + <br> + I think it's funny that they kick you out if you're wearing jeans (maybe someone had an hour to kill between classes and forgot his shorts....) or any sort of cargo apparel. The martial arts and fitness classes are challenging and fun, although I think they should be covered under our increasingly-exorbitant student fees. It's also a bummer that returning Fall students not taking summer classes do not enjoy summer access.<br> + <br> + The pavilion, while under construction at the moment, is an underrated workout zone (the cement bleacher steps are perfect for cardio workouts). Among all the pros and cons, the one thing I truly despise about the ARC community: fitness room cellphone users. --["Users/Fritzy"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
