Dalhousie fitness centre to open for 200th anniversary year

May 20, 2016

Dalhousie has announced that its new fitness centre will be set to open in 2018, the year of the university’s 200th anniversary. The new facilities have been developed in response to a long-standing need for better fitness and recreation facilities on campus, and will feature qualities such as fitness space for cardio, strength training, and high performance workouts, multi-purpose fitness rooms for fitness classes, universal washrooms, and three new change rooms. The facilities aim to be fully accessible and are designed to target LEED Gold Certification. “Dalplex has served us well,” says Kathie Wheadon, director, facility & business services, Athletics & Recreation, “but we’ve outgrown it and students have long told us that they want updated facilities, modern equipment and bright, pleasant workout spaces.” Dal
