Hastings +Chivetta, in association with MHTN Architects, has designed Dixie State University's new 155,000-sf Human Performance Center on their St. George, Utah campus. 

And while it may sound like the name of the building where Ivan Drago trained for his fight against Rocky Balboa, the Human Performance Center is actually the new home for the school's academic programs in Health and Human Performance such as exercise science, sports management, and health administration. The facility also provides space for Dixie State's joint effort with the University of Utah to offer physical and occupational therapy degrees.

In addition to the new building's academic aspects, it will also serve the campus's recreation, intramural, and athletic needs. The Human Performance Center features a fitness center with cardio, weights, and functional training; a track; a two-court gymnasium; multi-activity courts; a climbing wall; and a rooftop recreation area.

Amenities include pickleball courts, basketball courts, an indoor outdoor track that will circle the roof and continue indoors via a sprint track, and a 50-meter swimming pool. The pool is the only one in Southern Utah that conforms to NCAA Division II standards and will be open to the public during non-academic hours.
