LeRoy Johnson Eagle Fitness Center

Welcome to the LeRoy Johnson Eagle Fitness Center, open to the Northwest University community!

Believing that the achievement of excellence in bodily-kinesthetic intelligence is one of the pathways to understand and know God, the Eagle Fitness Center is another way for students to connect with our university mission. We are hoping that this facility will serve the Northwest University community by unifying and inspiring students and employees to pursue physical fitness and build good habits of exercise. We also hope to provide our intercollegiate athletes with this important advantage for success on the field of competition.

We are located on the first floor of the Barton Building.

All patrons must complete a Liability Waiver each year. Save time – review and electronically sign the waiver before scanning into the fitness center on the EFC Client Dashboard:
