Humber College is about to begin renovating its Athletic Centre, set for completion in January 2010. Athletics Director Doug Fox said the renovations will bring more than a new gym but an entire wellness wing for the whole school.

“Fitness has become a priority here,” said Fox. “It’s the main function of our area so we’ve got to make sure we look after them.”

The current gym is about 3,000 square feet while the new gym will be almost five times as big. Some of the programs that will occupy the wellness wing are the spa management program, the new massage therapy program, and the health centre. The lobby to the Athletics Centre will also be renovated.

The total cost of all renovations is $4.5 milion funded by Humber, HSF and the Athletics budget.
