George Allen Fitness Center

The George Allen Fitness Center is the offseason home for all 22 teams within the athletic department and open for students throughout the day and evenings. The Whittier Strength & Conditioning Program is a ground-based Olympic lifting program with six Olympic lifting platforms, six half racks and an assortment of kettlebells and dumbbells. 

The George Allen Fitness Center was dedicated in the fall of 1997 in honor of legendary football coach George Allen, Whittier's head coach from 1951-56.,  He went 31-22-5 and won one SCIAC title at Whittier before moving on to a 21-year career in the NFL. Allen was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. 

In the fall of 2016 the athletic department created the cardio room, which features Cybex strength and cardio machines. Hours for both rooms are listed below.
