The $4.3 million, state-of-the-art Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center on the northwest side of campus includes 6,700 square feet of new floor space as well as a renovation of the existing Alex G. Spanos Training Facility, combining for 12,000 square feet.

The center features zones for strength and conditioning and athletic training/rehabilitation, as well as an outdoor conditioning plaza, offices and a conference room.

Specific amenities include 15 Hammer Strength Power Racks, Keiser Functional Trainers, Tendo units, Wattbikes, a 12-person hydro tub and an AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill.

Named in honor of the Spanos family patriarch, the Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center was made possible by a lead gift of $500,000 from Dean Spanos, chairman of the board of the San Diego Chargers, and his family. 

Ground was broken in June of 2015 and the facility celebrated its official opening in October of the same year.

The Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center has garnered several prestigious accolades including an American Institute of Architects California Council Merit Award, a USG NACDA Sustainability Award, and an Orchid Award from the San Diego Architectural Foundation.
