Dear Fitness Centre Members,

Thank you for expressing your concerns surrounding the changes to the operating hours at the Fitness Centre. We do value your opinion and wish to explain our rationale.

Recognizing that the Centre’s membership is comprised of both Confederation College students and community members, we considered what summer hours would best accommodate the majority of our users. To assist with this decision, the operating hours of similar facilities were examined and it was determined that 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. operations is the accepted standard for weekdays. This time frame affords members the opportunity to work out before work and/or in the evening once the summer weather has cooled down.

The decision to reduce hours in the summer was difficult, but necessary. We experience a significant reduction in usage with our students off-campus for the season. In addition, as with many organizations, we continue to face fiscal restraints that impact our operations. With the exception of towel and locker service fees, membership rates have not changed since 2007. With these facts in mind, rather than increase member fees to cover rising costs, we have chosen to alter our summer hours.

We always welcome feedback from our users and appreciate your passion for our Fitness Centre. We are confident that all of our options have been properly considered and that our decision will provide the best level of service for our membership.

If you have any additional questions regarding this decision, please feel free to contact us.

Fitness Centre Memorandum

To Our Fitness Centre Members

Spring is on its way and we wanted to share some changes and improvements that will be taking place this spring and summer.

The Wellness and the Spartan rooms are now open and if you need tips on how to use the equipment there are instructions sheets available at the front desk.

Summer hours of operation begin May 1st and will be as follows:

Monday to Thursday 6:00 am. to 10:00 pm.; Friday 6:00 am to 9:00 pm.; and Weekends 8:00 am. to 6:00 pm.

The annual Confederation College Electrical Campus Wide Shutdown will take place on Saturday May 31st and Sunday June 1st.  The Fitness Centre is included in the shutdown and will reopen on Monday June 2nd, 2014.

The College Grounds will be the location for the 2014 Shelter House Relay.  Set up for the event will begin on Friday June 6th in the morning, with the event going on throughout the weekend.  We wish them great success this year in their new location.

This year the Fitness Centre Family Fun Run and the Kid's Sports/Activity Camps will be cancelled.

There is going to be some building renovations/improvements taking place this summer and we will announce the dates once they are finalized.  The first renovation will take place in the men’s shower area, which will result in this area being closed for approximately two weeks.  The second renovation is replacement of ceiling tiles in Room 201, 204 and the Nautilus/Trotter rooms.  Each of these areas will be closed for a 3 day period.  Once we have completed arrangements with the contractors and dates have been confirmed there will be another communication shared with our students and members.

Thank you.
