We have opened our new front entrance and new Hawk Desk (Customer Service Area). We are excited to announce that effective Wednesday November 6th will be running all our services (i.e, locks, towels, point of sale, Golden Hawk game ticket purchases and equipment sign out) from our new Hawk Desk. Effective November 6th the Equipment Desk (located on the bottom floor) will be closed. Within the next week our new turnstile/facility access gates will be installed which will require all members and students to swipe their access card in order to gain entry. Until this system is fully in place you will be required to present your access card to our Hawk Desk Staff in order to gain access.
We have also opened more space on our first and second floor providing more space and equipment for users. Please take the time to check out these new spaces and ask our Fitness Centre Staff if you have any questions or inquiries.
The official grand opening will take place on Wednesday November 13th at 4:00pm in our new lobby. All our welcomed to attend this ceremony as we officially open our new space and recognize the Laurier students and President's office for their generous financial contribution.
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.
