Current Lake Land College students and employees are welcome to use the Student Fitness Center during operating hours only. The facility is also available for retirees. The Student Fitness Center (SFC) can be used as walk-in or for a credit class. The center cannot be used on weekends or any time other than posted. No students, faculty, staff or retirees will be permitted to use the center when it is closed.
*If a student logs in and leaves the SFC without logging out the staff will delete the workout. The student may not log in under a different name. If this behavior continues, the student will be dropped from the course and could be written up for an academic integrity violation.
The students working out for credit must complete a minimum of 1500 minutes (25 hours) for an “A”, 1350 minutes (22 1/2 hours) for pass/fail.
The student may work out twice a day. All workouts must take place in the Student Fitness Center. Workouts from other Fitness Centers will not count. Each workout must be minimum of 30 continuous minutes to count and no more than 120 minutes a day. If the student is taking more than one credit, they must complete one class at a time. The following are recommended: Incorporate a proper aerobic warm-up and cool down stretches at the end of each workout.
The student must be actively pursuing the completion of the course and be in regular attendance. If a student is unable to attain the desired number of minutes or grade they need to follow the proper procedures to drop the course. If the student has not logged any minutes the first week of the class, they will be dropped from the course. Each student should have half of their minutes completed by mid-term. The student will have until the last class day of the semester to complete their minutes. There are extra days built into the semester where a student could come and work out when there are no scheduled classes. There are no make-up days due to inclement weather should the college be closed. There are no incompletes given for this course.
Storage space is available in the Fitness Center. Each person is responsible for any belongings left there. Locker rooms are provided to store books and to change clothes etc. Tall red lockers are reserved for athletes. Each student will provide his or her own lock and will empty the locker at the end of the spring semester and will remove the lock. It is very important to empty locker contents so maintenance can clean and sanitize the lockers. Any remaining contents will be disposed and not able to retrieve.
The Fitness Center staff has the authority to dismiss a person if they are not pursuing a workout according to the rules and regulations. A person should only enter the facility if they are going to exercise. Entering the SFC to socialize is prohibited. Failure to comply will result in a BIT form sent to the Vice President.
Each person is recommended to check with his or her doctor before starting an exercise regimen. Everyone must respect the environment and others while working out to avoid the risk of injury. When using the free weight room, lift with a partner and remember to use safety guidelines throughout the Fitness Center. Avoid dropping weights on the floor. Everyone is encouraged to eat before working out and stay hydrated. If you feel ill at anytime during your workout stop immediately and contact the staff.
All participants must understand and abide by the academic integrity policy and behave in a manner conducive with the college handbook. The staff will provide a clean and safe environment. All users of the SFC are responsible for their own workout programs. The staff can recommend and give helpful information, but they are not liable for how that information is interpreted or used by the participant. Should any problems or issues arise, please notify the instructor, Cathy L. Bunton at Field House 015, ext 5361, SFC staff, ext 5339 or Nic Nelson at Field House, room 016, ext. 5332.
