Names Fitness Center & Memorial Gym

Names Fitness Center is a 5,500-square-foot building that offers cardio equipment, a full complement of strength training equipment and free weights.  Names Fitness Center is attached to Memorial Gym that accommodates our well-attended Group Exercise, intramural sports, and physical education classes.  Memorial Gym also features offices for coaches and administrative staff, varsity locker rooms for the Men’s and Women’s Rowing, and Baseball. (Parking for Memorial is available in the lot next to the tennis courts across 124th Street from the gym.). Please check the Calendar below for the most recent schedule. Please note that hours are always subject to change.

Names Fitness Center and Memorial Gym will close at the end of the day on Monday, November 16 per the Governor’s mandate on fitness centers.  Both facilities will be closed for the rest of the semester.   We hope to reopen in early January if the current mandates allow us to do so.  Please check this webpage frequently for the latest information.
