FAQs

Are lockers available?
The Fitness Center has lockers where you may keep your belongings while you work out. You must bring your own lock, if you wish to lock up your belongs while working out. Sports, Recreation, and Wellness and the Fitness Center staff is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

I've heard it is impossible to get on equipment because it is so busy. Why is this?
While it is true that the Schumann Fitness Center is a busy place, there are always times when equipment is available. During peak hours (after 5:00pm) you may have to wait to use a piece of cardio equipment, however, there are time limits so that we can allow more individuals to use the equipment. We hope that this will keep everyone happy. You can always try adjusting your workout time to non-peak hours.

Are there personal trainers?
There are personal trainers that can be booked for sessions on a daily basis. Please speak with a Fitness Center attendant for more information about prices, availability, etc.

Where can I shower?
Shower facilities are available for use in the locker rooms in the Schumann Fitness Center. Please speak with a Fitness Center attendant for more information on location.
