    Fitness Centre Updates

    Last year, Fitness Room Supervisor Ms. Natalie Willson noticed a few spots in the Fitness Centre which were either misused or underused due to layout and arrangements of the equipment. Under her guidance, the Athletic Department put forward a proposal to consider rearranging and removing some of the equipment so that we could optimize what we already have and add valuable pieces like a squat rack and two olympic bars with plates. This equipment allows for mature movements like weighted squats and deadlifts.
