The 23,142 square foot Audie Murphy Athletic Performance Center is equipped for athletes and Soldiers focused on improving performance on or in the field. The center was dedicated in 1972 to the nation’s most highly decorated Veteran, 2nd LT Audie Murphy, who earned the Medal of Honor during World War II.

We’ve stocked the center with equipment geared toward functional training, including kettle bells, medicine balls, sleds, power racks, dumbbells, TRX, rowers, ladders, climbers, stability balls, battling ropes, slide boards and more.

Between 5:30 and 11 a.m., Soldiers in PT gear are our primary clients and our first priority. Please schedule your visit accordingly and always yield equipment, classroom or floor space to these Soldiers.
