Be a Part of a Community that will Motivate, Inspire and Empower Your Fitness Goals.

You may be aware that we are celebrating the 10-Year Anniversary of the opening of the RecPlex in 2006. Since then, with an eye on current trends and student needs, the University has pursued improvements at our various facilities in addition to annual reinvestments into the replacement and upgrade of a large majority of the cardio and strength equipment.

As we celebrate what is becoming a tradition of excellence in health and wellness, we also look forward with the goal of sustaining that distinction for the foreseeable future. For the first time in 10 years, we will be asking our members to increase their financial contribution as part of a plan that supports our commitment to excellence.

In support of your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle, you may renew your membership one more time at the current rates before the new rates take effect October 1, 2016. All individuals that join or renew prior to that time can extend their membership for one year at the same rates we have had for the last ten years. This applies to all annual memberships that currently expire before August 1, 2017. These changes are reflected in the various tables within each membership category below.

We anticipate that some individuals may have questions about the new rates and we would be happy to discuss those in more detail. We do hope that you will first visit our FAQ page which may provide further context.
