Laimbeer is Back and Better Than Ever Before

OLIVET, MICHIGAN (Sept. 5, 2023)- Daniel Hayes ‘21, coordinator of recreational programs was busy this past summer making upgrades to the Doris Laimbeer Fitness Center for the school year. He said “My main goal this summer was making improvements to the Laimbeer based off of feedback I received last semester from students off the UO App.”

One of the new additions to the fitness center is a stair stepper which students can use for cardio.

OLIVET, MICHIGAN (September 5, 2023)- New dumbbells now range from three pounds to one hundred and twenty five including double sets of 3 pounds to 55 pounds to allow more students to use them at once.

OLIVET, MICHIGAN (September 11, 2023)- A digital clock has been installed to allow students to keep track of how long they have been working out and allow them to include it in their workouts.

OLIVET, MICHIGAN (September 11, 2023)- One huge upgrade this year is the new treadmills. Hayes said these were a big request by students as they allow more students to do cardio at once.

OLIVET, MICHIGAN (September 11, 2023)- To conserve space, these racks have been installed in place of the old ones. This allows students to have more space when they work out and not feel so close to the other racks.

OLIVET, MICHIGAN (September 11, 2023)- Some new equipment has also been added which allows students to train with different kinds of implements so that they can have the workout they want to have or try new equipment to train with.

The Fitness Center is located on campus in the Upton Student Recreation Center, between Shipherd Hall and Blair Hall. Students need to bring their college ID to be able to use the Center.
