The UMF Fitness and Recreation Center is getting ready for some planned upgrades, according to the Daily Bulldog. The most significant part of the project, according to Ben White, newly-hired FRC director, is the resurfacing of the fieldhouse floor. The project is expected to close the fieldhouse portion of the FRC for roughly two weeks, beginning Monday. From Aug. 12 to Aug. 18 and Aug. 24 to Aug. 28. The FRC will remain open for both fitness and pool use, while the fieldhouse is closed. Locker rooms will be accessible and the strength room will house both strength and cardio equipment, providing a smaller version of the gym.
The FRC will also be closed from Aug. 19 to Aug. 23, for the annual shutdown. It will reopen on Aug. 24 with use of the pool and the miniature version of the gym. A reopening of the fieldhouse is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 29.
