Mission Statement

The mission of the Northwest Fitness Centers is to provide fitness programs and services that: enhance members' personal knowledge about wellness; promote interest and commitment to physically active health choices; provide opportunities for vigorous physical activity; and positive personal support resulting in healthy lifestyle behaviors.

The Fitness Centers provide a quality, clean and safe workout environment. They also provide, through employment opportunities, the potential for students to apply real time application of the skills, knowledge and positive dispositions taught in the Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (HPERD) curriculum.

Through diverse opportunities, the Northwest Fitness Center performs an active role in the recruitment and retention of students, faculty, and staff.
