October 2013 Facility Update
October 2013 Athletics & Recreation Facility Update

We are nearing completion of the Fitness Centre and Customer Service area expansion.  For the past 2 weeks new equipment has been delivered and set up throughout the facility as we get closer to officially opening.  We have started to take partial occupancy of certain spaces within the Fitness Centre and that will continue until we officially open.  Please continue to check for updates and news.  We will continue to send out correspondence keeping all membership informed of the status. 

The renovation of the Fitness Centre, which began late in August of 2012, will see the building more than double in square feet upon completion. Upon opening it will be an industry leader when it comes to providing a full, inclusive experience for all users.The space will feature approximately $800,000 worth of new equipment as well as a dramatic increase in the space for cardio, free weights, strength training and stretching zones while adding room for TRX training and two new studios. 

Questions and comments can be directed to:

Patricia Kitchen (AssociateDirector): ext. 2384
RYAN LANNAN (Coordinator:Facilities): ext. 3732  

Please note that we have moved our customer service operation to our lower desk (formally our equipment desk) until the Fitness Centre Expansion has been completed. All services will now take place at that location within the Athletic Complex.  We also have a staff stationed at our temporary King St. Entrance to ensure facility integrity and security.
