About the Gym & Fitness Center

The Gym & Fitness Center was remodeled in 2014 through a student-led Fitness Center Upgrade and Use 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 Upgrade Fee

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 Use Fee

In 2015 LCC students voted to support the Fitness Center Use fee of $20 per student per quarter to fund continued operation of the Gym & Fitness Center, including staffing and leasing of cardio equipment.
