Fitness Walking in Intramural Gym on Weekday Mornings


Lebanon, Ill. — Walk off the extra calories from holiday treats at McKendree University, where the Intramural Gym opens its doors on weekday mornings from 7 until 10 a.m.

Stroll the perimeter at your own pace to increase your heart rate a little or to shed extra holiday pounds, Monday through Friday mornings.

“It’s warm, dry, flat, clean, safe, well-lit and free. Thirteen laps around our gym is a mile,” said Kim Smallheer, assistant director of athletics. “Walk or run and then join other walkers for a cup of coffee afterward if you like.”

Wear comfortable athletic shoes; no street shoes, please. For everyone’s safety, strollers are not permitted.

The Intramural Gym is located on the far north end of the Melvin Price Convocation Center on Alton Street in Lebanon. Parking is adjacent to the building.

The gym is open every weekday of the year, Monday through Friday, except when a federal holiday falls on a weekday. For more information, call 618-537-6420.
