Announcement: We're giving Fitness East a little TLC this summer including new lighting, painting, carpet, as well as updated equipment. During these improvements, Fitness East will be closed Monday, July 3 through Tuesday, August 15 and will re-open Wednesday, August 16. We're confident these improvements will make Fitness East a better facility for our patrons and we thank you for your flexibility!

Fitness East is located in Halsey Hall, the old Women’s Gymnasium. A portion of the facility was converted to a fitness center in 1999, forming Fitness East. A 3,000 square foot addition was completed in 2001. Although smaller than our other facilities, Fitness East houses a variety of cardiovascular and strength training equipment. Locker rooms are also available. Fitness East is a membership access facility - patrons will be required to have a Recreational Services Membership or pay the daily walk-in fee in order to use the facility. Fitness East is located on the northeast corner of Madison and Jefferson streets. The entrance is located off the walkway between Halsey Hall and the IMU Parking Ramp. Parking is available in the IMU parking ramp.
