At QCC, students, faculty and staff have access to the Athletic Center located on QCC’s Main Campus on West Boylston Street in Worcester. The Athletic Center provides the QCC community with a way to stay healthy through exercise. Studies show that exercising reduces stress, reduces cholesterol, prevents osteoporosis, and helps prevent coronary heart disease in both men and women. In addition, exercising helps to firm and tone your body, keep your weight maintained and increase your energy level.
