A dark and dreary Fitness Center after hours

Have you noticed that the gym at SNHU is opening its doors late and closing early on the weekends? The main idea of the gym is to use any free time to help maintain a lifestyle healthy and stay active whenever possible.

Most students find that weekends are the best time to do extra activates. Yet the gym is not utilizing the full hours of the weekend like it is during weekdays. Through the week it is open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. These hours are quite extensive, but why can’t these same hours be implemented on weekends? On Saturdays and Sundays the gym opens its doors at 9 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m.

There is a seven hour difference between the weekend hours and the week hours at the gym. There is a major potential for students who are not free through the week to have the flexibility to go to the gym on the weekends at their leisure. Finding time to stay active amid classes, work and extra-curriculars can be extraordinarily difficult, and some students are simply too exhausted at the end of the day to even consider working out.

The main reason that they many students aren’t working out on the weekend is that of the gym’s hours create limitations.

If you share the same thought, do something about it. As they say “See something, say something”. Hopefully we can make changes that will benefit those looking to live a healthy lifestyle.
