 The strength and conditioning department at North Carolina A&T is the foundation of the Aggies athletics department. In order for the Aggies to compete at the highest levels, they must continue to develop through a thorough year-long workout routine, proper nutrition and proper rest. All 15 of the Aggies varsity sports benefit from the Aggies strength and conditioning philosophy of committed and disciplined weight training that enhances physical capabilities and reduces risk of injury.

Under the leadership of certified strength and conditioning coach Cedric Walthaw, becoming a fine-tuned athlete has become a 12-month commitment and the results can be seen through Walthaw's photography collection that shows physique development and loss of body fat on Aggie athletes. Walthaw is assisted by former football standout Montray Jackson.

Both men focus on increasing the muscular strength and power, enhancing movement mechanics and increasing energy on the field to improve physical ability and manage the stress of physical competition. The goal is to improve the success rate of each varsity sport. In the highly competitive Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, the Aggies off-the-playing surface preparation is crucial. The N.C. A&T athletics department offers athletes a top-of-the line, spacious strength and conditioning center inside the Bryant Fitness & Wellness Center.

Built in 2001, the strength and condition facility includes six Olympic platforms complete with bumpers plates and bars, free weights, multi-squat racks, hammer machines and 12 bench press stations. The center also includes two treadmills and stationary bikes for agility and warm-up workouts. The 4,500 square foot facility makes the center a model facility for not only historically black college and universities, but also for Division I Football Championship Subdivision football programs.
