Northridge, CA– CSUN alumnus of 1994, Bryan A. Green, has made a generous donation of time, expertise, and financial support towards the establishment of the new Student Recreation Center (SRC), and the recently entitled The Bryan Green Matador Training Zone. Green graduated from CSUN with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and Marketing. In 1997, he founded Advantage Fitness Products (AFP) and remains its Chief Operating Officer.  The company provides specialized consultation and support services across multiple facets of the health and fitness industry, including facility planning, design, equipment supply, and technical service support.

“CSUN will now officially join the ranks of those universities across the countries that have invested substantially in the health and wellness of their students and faculty alike with the establishment of a world class recreation center,” said Green. “I am proud to provide support for this vital campus initiative and have been thrilled to assist with the intricate facility planning and functional design requirements critical to the success of this dynamic environment.”

Green has developed facilities for more than 20,000 clients globally ranging from hotels to corporations, schools, government organizations, and private clubs.

“Mr. Green’s generosity will allow the SRC to have some of the most innovative fitness equipment in the industry,” said Debra L. Hammond, executive director of the USU.  “Bryan possesses a wealth of experience and a clear passion for the extension of student wellness at CSUN. He has assisted with equipment recommendations, design direction, and layouts of various areas helping to insure the facility will be both functional and efficient. I believe that the students and the campus will be pleased with the results.”

Students who have registered for the SRC will have access to the equipment provided by Green’s company, AFP, which includes more than eighty pieces of the latest cardiovascular equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines, steppers, upper body ergometers, rowing machines, recumbent and upright bikes. These machines come equipped with personal viewing screens that offer workout data and a wide variety of entertainment options. Students will be able to get in shape and build strength through a variety of cable weight machines, along with plate-loaded and free weight equipment. Equipment orientations will be free and provided by SRC fitness assistants to all students. Additionally, Body-Age fitness assessments will be available for students to analyze their stamina and percentage of body-fat.
