The new 12,000 square-foot fitness centre, located above the newly turfed Terry Fox Field and below the west gym at SFU Burnaby, will open for limited use July 13. SFU fitness coordinator Jessie Girard says the upstairs cardio facility will open first, followed by the downstairs weight room. She notes that some weight equipment will be placed temporarily on the cardio floor for the July 13 opening.

The new fitness centre is three times larger than the existing Piper's gym, which served approximately 350 people per day.  Piper's gym is now closed and undergoing renovation into classroom space.

Starting July 13 Fitness centre users can continue to enjoy the treadmills, stationary bikes and Stairmasters they're already familiar with while watching any of five ceiling-mounted televisions.
