L.I.F.E. Program Fitness Center

About Us:

The L.I.F.E. Program is an integral part of the Department of Kinesiology's efforts to enrich the lives of people in our community. The Department of Kinesiology keeps this program open for faculty, staff, students, and community members who wish to utilize on-campus exercise spaces. The facilities that the L.I.F.E. Program makes available to community members are the Ahearn Field House and gymnasiums, the Natatorium, the weight room (room 7), the locker rooms, and our Life Fitness Center (room 4). These spaces are overseen by the  L.I.F.E. Project Coordinator. Members of the L.I.F.E. Program have access to these areas (with exception to the Natatorium) during our regular operating hours.

The L.I.F.E. Program offers a variety of activities throughout the day. Whether you are interested in exercising on your own in our weight room, playing noon-ball with the regulars (see our Jarvin Emerson Award), attending aqua aerobics classes, or reserving the gymnasium or field house for an evening event, the L.I.F.E. Program has something for everyone. If you are interested in finding out more about our Aqua Aerobics classes, please click here. Below are the facilities that are available to L.I.F.E. Members:
