The LCCC Fitness Center is one of the most “active” places on campus. Located within the Physical Education building, the center is open six days a week. Individuals taking classes or just wishing to remain or become fit find it the place to be.

The Fitness Center serves as LCCC’s classroom for Lifetime Fitness, which is a program that can be taken as a credit or non-credit course. It has sections and orientations for many age groups. It continues to be a popular class on campus.

Whatever the reason for participation, the Fitness Center offers many benefits for those seeking optimum health and wellness.
