The Gym & Fitness Center was completely remodeled in 2014 through a student-led Fitness Initiative and Operational Fee.
The renovation included an updated gym; new fitness center; classroom space for dance, yoga, health and continuing education classes; community spaces; coaching offices, locker rooms and a juice bar.
About the Fitness Initiative
In 2005 LCC students voted 278-36 to impose a $2.50-per-credit fee to bring the Myklebust Gymnasium, built in 1959, up to ADA code, and to remodel and expand the small fitness center. In 2011 the Washington State Legislature approved $2 million in matching capital funds.
About the Operational Fee
In 2015 LCC students voted to support the a Fitness Center Operational Fee which directs the College to assess a $20 quarterly student fee to fund continued operation of the Gym & Fitness Center, including staffing and leasing of cardio equipment.
“It's neat that nine years ago students had the vision to plant an idea that will bear fruit for future students.”—Nolan Wheeler, VP of Administration.

Local native Jarad Miller earned his BA in Health & Fitness Administration from Jamestown University in North Dakota, and his MS in Health, Nutrition, and Exercise Science from North Dakota State University.
Jarad and his fiance' are glad to back in the Pacific Northwest so they can be close to family and enjoy outdoor adventures. He's excited about the opportunity to influence campus and community members in their efforts to make healthier choices in their lives. Jarad is well versed in many areas of health and fitness as he has been employed in personal training, college athletics, cardiac rehabilitation, and employee wellness. So as they say at LCC... they went to Jarad's!
LCC is glad to welcome Jarad to the team!
