Fike Recreation Center, also known as the Swann Fitness Center, is home to Clemson's many fitness related activities. It is located behind the frat quad, and adjacent to the intramural fields and the stadium. It houses various exercise equipment and free weights, treadmills (complete with flat screen televisions for your viewing pleasure while working out), elliptical machines, an indoor suspended track, basketball courts, multipurpose rooms, racquetball courts, rock climbing wall, and an Olympic-size swimming pool with dive tank. There are also centers for yoga, pilates, and general fitness. Equipment rental is available and a smoothie bar is located at the front entrance. Student ID or membership card is required for entry; guests of members or students are $6 per visit.

Alumni, faculty of the university, and residents of the community may also purchase memberships to use the Fike facilities. Packages are also available for the families of such individuals.
