VMI Strength and Conditioning is responsible for helping athletes become bigger, stronger and faster. They ensure the athletes' overall conditioning, safety and injury prevention. Cadets work with coaches from Strength and Conditioning and their athletic teams to improve their overall performance.

Located in Cocke Hall, the Charles S. Luck '20 Memorial Weight Room has over 7,000 square feet of space and contains over 15,000 pounds of dumbell weights. Cadet athletes can use over 70 pieces of free weight training equipment and over 40 separate pieces of resistive training machine equipment.

Among the key acquisitions in the recent renovations are the addition and enlargement of the dumbbell training area, which has almost tripled in size and now contains weights ranging from five to 140 pounds. Auto-spot benches were installed, among the newest and safest pieces of weight training equipment available. New Olympic platforms were installed, with increased cushioning and padding for the weights.

Five heavy-duty power racks, weighing 400 pounds each, were installed and a number of back, leg, and neck machines were installed to complement existing equipment. Finally, the entire weight room has added a state of the art rubber floor.
