The University of Iowa Division of Recreational Services will hold an open house for students, faculty, staff, and the public from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 to celebrate completion of the expansion of Fitness East, located in Halsey Hall, corner of Jefferson and Madison streets.

The Fitness East open house will include activities, such as Pilates, yoga or resist-a-ball demonstrations, and a free workout, as well as food, refreshments and a chance to win a free personal training session.

The cardio-theater has also been expanded. Additional information can be obtained by visiting the Recreational Services website at or by calling the main office at 335-9293.
