WATERLOO, Ont. (September 16, 2013) - Wilfrid Laurier Athletics and Recreation is pleased to announce that as of Friday, October 11 at 6 a.m. the free weight area on the first floor of the Fitness Centre and a portion of the second floor will be open for use.
With substantial progress being made on the expansion renovation, all students and members will have access to equipment within those designated spaces.
With the move of equipment from Squash Court #1, it will be available for squash bookings within the next two weeks.
Programming in intramurals, wellness, aquatics and dance will continue as scheduled while extended open gym times at both the Athletic Complex and University Stadium will continue to be offered for the remainder of the academic year.
Access to the building will continue to be from the East exterior King St. doors which are located near the King St. bus stop location. As well, the majority of Customer Service operations will be at the lower level Hawk Desk (formerly the equipment desk).
The renovation of the Fitness Centre, which began late in August of 2012, will see the building more than double in square footage upon completion. Upon opening, it will be an industry leader in providing a full, inclusive experience for all types of 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 also adding a TRX training station and two studios.
