Wolves News · School Weight Room Gets Summer Upgrade


The Wolves weight room has been revamped! The Athletic Department purchased three Power Racks, a leg curl machine, a leg press machine, and a leg extension machine.

Providence Cristo Rey’s Athletic Director, Andrew Dishman, is excited for the new additions. “This equipment will not only help us develop healthy habits with our student athletes, but with our entire student body.”

Mr. Dishman, also the school’s P.E. instructor, incorporates weight room exercises into the P.E. curriculum. “I think it is important that our students are confident using this kind of equipment safely. You don’t have to be a full-time athlete to be able to benefit from it.”

The Power Rack includes a bench press, shoulder press, incline bench, squat machine, pull-up bar, and power cling in one machine, making room for multiple pieces of equipment.

Thank you to the Haddad Foundation for granting funds to purchase the new equipment!
