The Meyer Recreation Barn (a.k.a. MRB or Fitness Center) is the campus athletic and wellness facility.

The MRB houses an aerobics room, climbing wall, free weights, sauna, and showers. The exercise equipment includes selectorized/cable, cardiovascular, and plate-loaded machines. There is DirecTV access for some cardiovascular machines, and a CardioTheater system that allows patrons to listen to a variety of television and movie channels while working out. Students and staff may check out sporting equipment such as basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, tennis rackets, camping gear, cross-country skiing equipment, snowshoes, and badminton and croquet sets. The Bennington Athletic Department (BAD) offers a range of yoga and fitness classes that are held in the MRB during the term.

In 2014, MRB purchased more than ten new pieces of equipment including treadmills, ellipticals, steppers, and bikes.
