National fitness guidelines state that adults need moderate physical activity on a routine basis to assist in warding off heart disease and other common killers.  Not getting enough exercise, despite a healthy diet and weight, poses nearly the same risks as smoking, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Our mission is to provide you with the necessary resources to help you overcome these health risks.

Becoming a member of the West Center will entitle you to use of the facilities listed below as well as participation in all group fitness classes offered through Recreational Services. Personal exercise programs can be set up by our professional staff in Recreational Services plus a lock, locker and towel service will be provided as part of your West Center membership.
