The Lamar Community College Fitness Center has recently expanded its hours to better serve its users.
The Fitness Center will now be open Monday through Friday from 5:00am to 8:00pm and Saturday from 8:00 to 11:00am. It will be closed on Sundays and on major holidays, and any holiday closures will be posted in advance.
The change in hours is largely in response to requests from the community and current Fitness Center users. Their feedback indicated a need for longer hours and for the hours to remain the same all year long, and the staff was happy to adjust to meet these needs.
And, even with the additional hours added to the schedule, the Fitness Center has been able to keep the rates largely the same with two small exceptions. The students will see a slight increase in their rates and the 12-month membership for community members has increased by $10 to $250 per year.
The Fitness Center staff members look forward to seeing some new faces thanks to the extended hours and to helping people become healthier individuals.
