Built in 2015, the Robert and Virginia Foster Fitness Center is a state-of-the-art fitness center, consisting of 19,490 square feet of open floor space to accommodate cardio and weight lifting machines, a human performance lab and classroom space.

The facility houses areas for aerobic, strength and flexibility training as well as a separate exercise studio for individual and group graining. In addition, the building features a 2,300-square-foot mezzanine with cardio equipment and windows that provide natural lighting in the facility. It also includes new locker rooms and an enclosed walkway connecting Northwest’s existing Student Recreation Center for added convenience. Energy usage is greatly reduced in the new space with all new mechanical and electrical systems as well as LED lighting.
