About the Fitness Center
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.
Opening the Richard L. Duchossois Athletic and Recreation Center
The new Richard L. Duchossois Athletic and Recreation Center will open for the 2020 Fall Term. No specific date is currently set for when the Washington and Lee community will be able to use the building, but it will be announced in the near future. In order to ensure the health and safety of the community once the building is open, all users of the facility will be expected to adhere to university and public health and safety guidelines, including the use of PPE and physical distancing at all times.
The hours of operation for the facility and the fitness center will likely be reduced during this time, and the capacity for different areas of the building will be limited. Until announced otherwise, the facility will be restricted to current faculty, staff and students. No visitors or family members of employees will be allowed access to the building per university guidelines. An announcement regarding first date of use, specific hours of operation and capacity limitations will be made in August as we get closer to the start of the fall term.
