Noack Strength and Fitness Center

The Noack Strength & Fitness Center offers 4,500 sq. ft. of strength and conditioning equipment. Programming is led by two full-time, certified strength and conditioning coaches to help all students achieve their fitness goals.

Traditional physical education courses are not offered at Marquette High. The fitness program (which is a requirement for freshmen) addresses health, fitness and wellness issues that can sometimes be neglected when students do not attend health or physical education classes. It is based on teaching lifetime activities that provide long-term benefits to health and well-being. This is a great opportunity for students to improve their current fitness level and overall health while receiving proper guidance and support throughout the process.

Freshman Fitness Program Requirement

Dedicated to educating the whole person, we see the physical formation of our students as an integral part of Jesuit education. Freshmen will participate in the Freshman Fitness Program throughout the academic school year. Participation will depend upon student's academic eligibility and current participation in athletics. Students involved in athletics will not have a fitness requirement during their athletic season. Exemptions may be issued by the Assistant Principal for Academics and the Fitness Director as appropriate. A fitness manual will be provided to all freshmen students during registration week. In addition, updated manuals will be posted on the school website.

The Fitness Program for freshman is a requirement for graduation, much like service. A mark of S/U for Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory will be placed on the student’s permanent MUHS transcript. Should a student fail to complete the fitness requirement, he will receive an ‘Unsatisfactory’ notation on his transcript, and the student will need to complete an equivalent make-up program in order to complete the requirement and be eligible for graduation. Students who fail to complete the weekly requirements will receive a JUG. This is a freshman only program.

Hilltopper Strength & Conditioning Programs

Strength & Conditioning Registration Form - Winter 2023

Registration for the winter session of Blue & Gold, Hilltopper Sports Performance Academy, and Powerlifting is open through Nov. 3, 2023. 


Program Overview

Students participating in Hilltopper Strength & Conditioning will need to sign up for regularly scheduled workouts and commit to their assigned time. The structured schedule will spread out the number of users and improve safety, efficiency, effectiveness, and instruction. The end result being maximal physical development and ensuring that all students have access to and opportunity to utilize equipment and receive instruction. All students (athletes and non-athletes) that would like to use the Noack Strength & Fitness Center need to participate in one of the structured programs. These programs are not part of Freshmen Fitness or required to complete Freshmen Fitness.

If you plan on participating in Hilltopper strength and conditioning programs, you need to complete and submit the form for each session. Students will be assigned to a group based on criteria including grade, experience, attitude, effort, and previous commitment level. Spots are limited for each session. Plan your daily routine and commit to the schedule to maintain your spot.

By registering, you are committing to making your assigned workout consistently and working hard. You will show up on time and be ready to go, be a leader, and follow coach’s instruction. Additional effort will be made outside training sessions to follow a healthy diet, recovery plan, and obtain eight hours of sleep each night. By doing so, you will have done everything possible to ensure reaching your performance and fitness goals. You should have pride knowing you committed to and worked hard to improve yourself. Leave nothing to chance and have no regrets. Go Hilltoppers!
