Extending Sunday Gym Hours

This petition had 75 supporters

As part of our final assignment for our Introduction to Public Health course, we are tasked with attempting to change a policy that we think would lead to a healthier campus. We are seeking the approval of adding more operational hours for the King Horn gym, as well as the posting of the sports teams’ practice schedules online for ease of access to other gym users.
The current operational hours of King Horn Gym are insufficient to some parties. Extending these hours on the weekends, specifically on Sunday mornings and Friday and Saturday nights, would benefit many students, giving them more time to exercise at a time that it convenient for them. Keeping fit has a beneficial aspect of student’s lives as it helps with relaxing, physical fitness and boosting academic performance. Therefore, the hours extension will reduce the amount of people in the area at one time, allowing every student the ability to work out comfortably.
Moreover, the information regarding when the sports team uses the gym is not available on the online page. The lack of access to this information online inconveniences other gym users since their planned training time might collide with the training time for a sports team. Including and updating this information online would be a very beneficial change because it would allow non-athletes to check the schedule before they go to make sure that there is not an athletic team practicing at the same time. This is a simple addition that would be very useful and valuable by ensuring each gym user of the best use of their time.
Expanding the gym’s operational hours and updating information on the online page will be of extreme benefit and we believe it will improve the health of ONU’s campus. We are hopeful that you will sign our petition to drive the update of the online page with information regarding the practicing hours of the sports teams, as well as possibly increasing the operational hours especially on the weekends.
