Can I bring food and beverages downstairs in the HLS Facility?

Plastic water bottles are fine, but to keep our facility looking as clean as possible we ask that all patrons please consume any food and beverage items before coming downstairs to workout.

How do I get started on an Incentive Program?

Getting started is EASY! Sign-up and collect a logbook at the lower-level Fitness Center Desk, keep track and log your work-outs in the logbook by having a Fitness Center Employee date and initial your book after each workout and/or group fitness class attended. Our current incentive program is called ArgoFit.
