Fall 2015

Sign up at the front desk or call ext. 3143 for Orientation, Personal Training, Fitness Assessment and Equipment Reservation. 

Welcome new and returning Students; Faculty & Staff and Alumni
The Fitness Center Program has made many significant changes over the summer.  We have re-arranged a significant portion of our equipment to provide greater ease of use and create new space.  Fresh accent painting; new and relocated televisions;  new Hammer, Life Fitness and Cybex exercise equipment will all newly greet you to start the fall session.  The Hood Hall facility has also recieved some new cardio equipment including an EFX and treadmill. 

We have also done away with issuing keys for fitness center member locker room use.  Keyed locks have been replaced with Code locks, which allow the user to create their own four digit code.  No longer will the fitness center keep member ID's pertaining to the use of lockers.

The Group Exercise Program has also added new classes, equipment and talented student instructors.  We look forward to serving your fitness and wellness needs this fall.  Please let us know what we can do to help keep you on track.

Free Trial Period! For the last two weeks of the summer session (8/10-8/21) any eligible members of the campus community can get a head start on the fall session. 

Opening Weekend: Summer session ends Friday, August 21st.  For Opening Weekend, hours at Memorial will be Saturday, Aug. 22: 12:00-8:00pm.  On Sunday, Aug. 23: 4:00-10:00pm.
