New VLS Fitness Center Opens on Valentines Day

Really looking forward to the opening of the VLS Fitness Center – a great example of the sustainability and community philosophies on the VLS campus.  Can’t wait to break from reading all the great apps with a little iron pumping!  Here’s the news from our Assoc. Dean of Student Affairs and Diversity, Shirley Jefferson:

We are pleased to announce the grand opening of Vermont Law School’s new fitness center at 180 North Windsor St. (just past Magic Mountain Children’s Center) on Thursday, February 14 from 12:45-2:00. We’ll be serving light refreshments, including freshly made juices and red velvet cake.

The VLS fitness center was designed by the nationally renowned firm Eck, MacNeely Architects of Boston and built by E.F. Wall & Associates of Barre, VT. The 4,100-square foot, one-story facility has a contemporary, environmentally sustainable design compatible with the historic architecture of South Royalton and Vermont Law School.  Naturally sited in the slope of a hill to take advantage of constant soil temperatures, the VLS fitness center is highly energy efficient and uses low-maintenance materials with a natural feeling. The roof, walls, and high-performance windows are extensively insulated, and the southern roof has the potential for photovoltaics. The interior design features bamboo flooring, high-efficiency lighting, and natural cross-ventilation. Best management practices are planned for storm-water runoff, including permeable pavement and rain gardens.

The equipment in the center is a mix of Cybex and True cardio and weight training machines, including treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, and free weights.

We are thankful to everyone – including students from the class of 2011 – who worked tirelessly to make our new fitness center a reality.

 We look forward to celebrating with you on Valentine’s Day and encouraging fitness for the entire VLS community.
