Fitness Centre Equipment Shuffle

New homes for Olympic Platform & Spin Bikes

July 9, 2015


Olympic Platform

On Sunday, July 12, the Olympic Platform will be moved to Fitness Studio 1 at the back of the Fitness Centre.  Not only will this create more space in the Fitness Centre, but it will also help to limit the amount of disruptions the Platform could cause. Everyone will still have access to the Olympic Platform and other great equipment (such as battle ropes), when the room is not being utilized for Sports Performance programming. If Olympic lifting is your primary goal, stop by or contact the Fitness Centre Desk (902.490.2580) in advance to ensure the Platform is available for when you’d like to use it.

Take it to the Track

To help you get the most out of your workouts, we’re now allowing equipment (weights and jump ropes) to be used on the Track. To take equipment to the Track simply sign it out at the Fitness Centre Desk and then back in again when you’re done. The same Fitness Centre rules apply; please do not drop the equipment, and once finished with it, please wipe it down and return it to its original place.

Spin Bikes & Rowers

The Keiser Spin Bikes used for Spin classes have been relocated to the Track Alcove just outside of the Fitness Centre. For your safety and the maintenance of the equipment, these bikes will only be used during Spin classes. For class times, you can pick up a copy of our Drop-in Fitness Schedule from the Customer Service Desk.  But don’t worry, you’re not bike-less! There will be 2 V-series bikes in the Fitness Centre at all times, and when not in use,  2 Keiser Spin Bikes will be available as well. Also, we’ve moved 2 concept rowers to the Track Starting Blocks area for anyone ages 14 and up to use.

Have questions about the shuffle or equipment on the Track? Our friendly Fitness Centre staff are always happy to answer any questions  you may have.
