The goal of the Life Fitness Center is to teach students basic fitness concepts and skills related to the improvement of health and wellness through entry level courses. After the successful completion of the basic entry level course Fitness 371, students are encouraged to take other courses - Fitness 372, 373, 374 - in the Life Fitness Program to develop additional fitness skills to meet the individual student needs. With each class, students learn more skills and strategies, building their personal "fitness toolbox".
Check the class schedule for available courses.

The Life Fitness Center offers a series of 4 classes that use an "open entry/open-exit format." This involves offering courses that are self-paced and allows each enrolled student the flexibility to use the LFC during the open lab hours to complete the course curriculum. The LFC is open 6 days a week, Monday thru Saturday, for a total of 36 hours available for the student to achieve their fitness goals.
Students must complete a mandatory program orientation before working out in the Life Fitness Center. To participate in the 1.5 hour Life Fitness Center Orientation program all students must have the Life Fitness Center Manual. The manual can be purchased at the College Store.
