The LifeFit Center is now proud to say that it is officially an Exercise is Medicine on Campus facility.
We at the LifeFit Center are making a commitment to uphold and promote these guiding principles of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) Program.
• Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.
• More should be done in university and college settings to encourage students to establish lifelong exercise and physical activity habits that have the power to significantly improve the quality of students’ lives.
• Support the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM’s) efforts to bring a greater focus on exercise and physical activity in university and college settings.
Dear LifeFit Members, Staff, and Interns,
I want to thank you for your commitment to the LifeFit Center. Thank you for creating a wonderful community that adds to the lives of all who are part of it. Our community has grown significantly from 30 members in 2012 to over 530 members in 2016. We have seen growth in all of our programs and services, and have seen many lives changed as a result.
I am grateful that we have not needed to raise membership prices once during our first four years of operation. Recently, our operational costs have increased significantly, and this will require us to raise our membership fees effective September 1st. The increase in operational costs comes largely from a University-wide parking fee increase. Parking fees have gone up for University students, employees, and guests. To accommodate our increased operational costs, we will be raising Community Memberships (OLLI, Alumni, and Community) by $7.00/month and Employee Memberships by $5.00/month. Express Membership fees will go up $10 per term. Please see a detailed breakdown of membership fees below.
Parking will continue to be included in your community membership if you pay for 3 months or more at a time (employee memberships are excluded from this). As a way of accommodating all of our members with parking, we have requested and been granted access to all general lots for LifeFit member parking (see map provided in monthly email or at Service Desk). In addition to Lot 10A and the structures, you will now be able to park in any general lot on campus with your LifeFit permit.
As always, we are committed to offering you an exceptional experience at the LifeFit Center. If you have questions about the membership fee increase, please feel free to contact me directly at: 562-985-2005, email@example.com, or make an appointment to visit me in person.
ALL OTHER CSULB $35/month
