Toldo Lancer Centre offers summer membership deal for UWindsor employees and alumni

Lauryn Rogers works out at the Toldo Lancer Centre four to five times a week.

She swims. She kickboxes. She works out in the gym.

“It has everything I could possibly need in one location,” said Rogers, a UWindsor employee and recent grad. “And I pretty much use the whole thing.”

The University’s new fitness facility is offering a special deal for employees and alumni this summer, with a two-month membership for July and August priced at $79. If you sign up for a full year during that time, $79 will be deducted from the cost. And employees and alumni enjoy 15 per cent off the regular price of one-year memberships.

“It’s definitely a great deal,” said Rogers. “When you compare the cost to other gyms, this is definitely a bargain, and the Toldo Lancer Centre offers so much more.”

The $73 million Toldo Lancer Centre includes a state-of-the-art fitness centre that spans two floors, a 25-metre pool that is fully accessible, a suspended track overlooking a new triple gymnasium with open hours for basketball and volleyball, a spin studio, a martial arts studio, and multipurpose rooms for a variety of fitness classes. The Dennis Fairall Fieldhouse is part of the Toldo Lancer Centre, with its schedule of daily activities including pickleball and badminton.

Summer members can sign up online here or in person 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Tours are included with all new memberships.
