The Washington and Lee University Fitness Center was reconfigured and renovated as part of the Richard L. Duchossois Athletic and Recreation Center project that was completed in the fall of 2020 at a cost of nearly 48 million dollars. The Fitness Center is a nearly 9,000 square foot facility that features floor space for free weights, strength and cardio equipment. The renovation allowed for a dedicated med ball impact area and PLAE resilient flooring throughout the facility. The space is equipped with cardio machines, Body Masters strength equipment, a full line of dumbbells and strength equipment, stability balls, exercise tubing, and medicine balls.
In cases of extreme weather:
- If the University delays opening, we will open at the time announced
- If the University then closes, the decision to open the Fitness Center will be based on weather conditions and the availability of staffing
- Knowing that the University usually calls for delay/ closing after we open, in cases of forecasted extreme weather we will plan on opening at 830 am. If the University then delays we will follow that guideline
- On weekends the decision to delay opening or close entirely will be based on weather conditions, safety recommendations and availability of staff
Every effort will be made to inform the W&L community in a timely manner. For updates, please check https://calendly.com/wlufitnesscenter, our twitter page: @wluFitCenter or call the front desk at 540-458-8966.
