This winter, the Edwards Fitness Center will be given a much-needed makeover during, giving students a clean, new gym.
Edwards, Lasell’s main exercise outlet, is being renovated after years of wear and tear. The condition of the gym is dirty, smelly, and outdated. Rust covers the weights, leaving a film of brown dust on the hands of anyone touching them.
SGA member, Seth Millman exhausted every option to get the school to refurbish one of its outdated facilities. “I sat outside the cafeteria one day and had students come by and write down what they would like to see happen to make improvements to the gym’s existing condition,” said Millman.
Collin McCullough, one of the assistant athletic trainers at Lasell, explained the plans behind Lasell’s new fitness center.
“I am here because we are looking to add a brand new modernized gym, which will be ready for the spring semester. Everything in here will be brand new,” McCullough said. “[I]t is exciting to finally get this project underway.” McCullough has been mapping out the specs for the new gym layout.
Brand new weights, squat racks and fly machines will replace the old equipment and a new floor will be installed.
“I can actually look forward to going to the gym, and I used to hate it,” said junior Sean Alexander.
