Grand Rapids Community College students looking to stay physically fit but wanting to save money on a gym membership should look no further than the Ford Fieldhouse which is free to all students.

The fieldhouse is the GRCC sports facility that consists of a full size gym with indoor track, indoor swimming pool, multiple fitness rooms, and locker/shower rooms. Locker rental and towel service is also available for students for an annual fee of $20 each. Students are required to pay a refundable $5 deposit for towels and a refundable $10 deposit for lockers.

All times are subject to change without notice due to events such as team practices, games, classes and weather. The women’s volleyball season opener is scheduled for Aug. 24 at the fieldhouse, while the women’s basketball team will open up play Oct. 26. Men’s basketball will begin competition on Nov. 11.

Non-students also have access to the fieldhouse health club for an annual fee. Full service memberships go for $195 a year, or couples can get a joint membership for $325 a year. Full membership includes laundry service, towel service, and locker and padlock rental. A limited membership goes for $150 a year and does not include locker, laundry or towel service. A monthly membership runs for $40 a month, but does not include locker, laundry, or towel service, and lasts 30 days.
