The weight room, which was renovated in 2008, is frequently used in Personal Fitness classes.

The physical education program at Randolph-Macon Academy provides an opportunity for students to develop efficient and effective motor skills and to embark on a continuing program of physical fitness. By engaging in team sports, students develop confidence and emotional control, and learn the rules of good sportsmanship. Physical education credits are awarded for participation in interscholastic and intramural sports.  One-half credit is awarded for every season of participation.  Most of the physical education activities are conducted after the classroom instruction.
