  • Athletic bottoms: shorts, pants, leggings, skorts.

Montclair State Campus Recreation advises our patrons to “Protect Your Skin at the Gym” in an effort to promote good hygiene and limit the spread of skin borne illnesses.  We suggest that you exercise in clothing that provides ample coverage of your skin and that you regularly clean machines that you exercise on prior to and after completing your activity.
