No excuses; staff rates can help you stay in shape

The University of Lethbridge and Sport and Recreation Services make it difficult to come up with excuses for not staying in shape.

Not only does the U of L have first-rate facilities to satisfy every recreational need, Sport and Recreation Services offers staff membership rates to all University of Lethbridge employees.

Membership includes access to the Fitness Centre, Max Bell Aquatic Centre, triple gymnasium, Ascent Climbing Centre, indoor running track, as well as admission to selected drop-in fitness classes, and a 10 per cent discount on select group programs and services.

Passes can be purchased either monthly ($28), quarterly ($100) or annually ($265.50) and there is also the option of monthly payroll deduction ($22.10 per month). Memberships provide access to the locker rooms. Both male and female locker rooms have steam rooms and lockers for rent that come with towel service. Locker rates are approximately $5 per month on payroll deduction. Lockers can be rented either quarterly or annually.

Additionally, Sport and Recreation Services offers programs such as personal consultations and personal training. This is a great way to not only get introduced to the facility but to receive specific training on living a healthy lifestyle.
