Shed your shame: Newton fitness center encourages students to work out

By Victoria Healy


One of the best resources that GPC Newton campus offers is the student fitness center, located on the main floor in building 2N.

In a society that is constantly focusing on body image, healthy habits and weight loss, the student fitness center is an aid for Newton campus students.

The center is available to every student and faculty member with school I.D.

The fitness center has some of the newest fitness equipment available, including a wide range of cardio machines and free weights. Though the center is small, students should not hesitate to get in and get fit.

“Don’t worry about who is here and who is watching you, your health is what matters, not who is watching you exercise,” said Zamir Wisrael, a GPC student who can be found manning the desk in the fitness center Monday through Thursday. “The consequences of not coming are far greater than those who do not take advantage of the center.”

The center is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Newton is a small campus, so there is less traffic in the fitness center,” said Wisrael. “There is usually no wait for machines and there is no time limit for use.”
