Join LFP!

Adults 55 and over residing in the Urbana-Champaign area are eligible to participate in the Lifetime Fitness Program.

Membership:

As an LFP member OR Silver Sneakers member you have two options to choose from.

Option 1

FULL membership.  This includes:

  • General access to CRCE on Monday-Friday from 6:30am – 12:30pm, including access to all cardio and resistance training machines and weights, indoor track, etc.
  • Access to ALL fitness classes taught by LFP staff (generally taught from 7:00 – 8:30, Monday – Friday).  This includes, but is not limited to: flexibility, strength, balance, aerobics, water aerobics, core strength, and balance classes.

*This option is most appropriate for those who enjoy taking fitness classes from trained instructors.

Option 2

LIMITED membership. This includes:

  • General access to CRCE on Monday-Friday from 6:30am – 12:30pm, including access to all cardio and resistance training machines and weights, indoor track, etc.
  • Access to a LIMITED number of fitness classes taught by LFP fitness instructors.  The classes included in this membership include a flexibility class, generally taught on MWF at 7:00am, and an aerobics class taught on TTH at 7:00am.

*This option is typically for those that mainly want to work out on their own at the facility

 

Note that BOTH options provide general access to the CRCE facility M-F from 6:30am to 12:30pm.

*On days that CRCE is closed (certain holidays, summer sessions, etc), members will have access to the ARC during these same hours (M – F 6:30am – 12:30pm), though typically our fitness classes are NOT taught at the ARC. Please note when CRCE is OPEN, this is the only campus facility that LFP and/or Silver Sneakers members have access to.

 

Silver Sneakers members will use their Silver Sneakers ID card to sign into the gym facility.

Other LFP members will be given an LFP name badge to sign into the gym facility.
