Valued members,

We’re pleased to share our plan to reopen the Langille Athletic Centre.  We hope you are as excited as we are to be able to get back to the gym. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Reopening Date – August 17
Langille Athletic Centre will reopen with modifications and appointments will be required.

18 Fitness Pods have been created within the facility to accommodate 19 members at a time.
Members will be required to book an appointment to use a Fitness Pod.
Appointments will be for an hour and a half each and includes the time it takes to perform a health screen of each member.
There will be a total of six (6) appointment periods per day Mon. to Thurs., and four (4) on Fri. and Sun. (Closed Saturdays).
Members are limited to one appointment per day.
Members will be able to book their appointments by calling 902 893-6660 or by emailing rams@dal.ca one (1) day in advance.
Members will be required to complete a health screening during the booking process.
Members who do not show up for their appointments without notice may lose the ability to book future visits.
Members must use their DalCard/membership card to access the facility. Entry will not be permitted without it.
Robust cleaning measures will take place in between appointment periods.
