URC Fitness Center

About the Fitness Center

The goal of the URC Fitness Center at Eastern Washington University is to educate our members about the importance of a balanced approach to physical fitness in an effort to improve their quality of life. This includes the fundamental components of a successful physical fitness program such as strength, endurance, flexibility, and cardiovascular training. Our goal is to instill a dedication to all aspects of fitness and promote positive lifestyle changes as an integral part of the wellness program at EWU.

Please note: Participants may continue working out 30 minutes after posted closing times.

ALL participants to the Recreation Centers must submit a Participant Recreation Facilities Waiver.
Waivers are required once per year and are active for 365 days.
