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 www.laurierathletics.com 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.

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.
New SquashCourt online booking system
We have introduced a new online system for squash court bookings. If you are an avid squash player or even looking for recreational games court requests will now only be done online (up to 72 hours in advance). Please note that currently only Squash Court #2 is available until the Fitness Centre Expansion is completed, to provide more equipment opportunities for all users.
Membership including lockers, towels and general membership can be done at our Hawk Desk at any time during our hours of operation. Make sure you take the time to renew your membership so you will have access to our fully renovated facility.
