I keep hearing from residents who complain that the Columbia Gym closes too early at weekend which does not meet their needs. In fact, Columbia Gym operates on the following schedule at weekend: Saturday, 7am-7pm; Sunday, 7am-5pm.
Personally, I also feel the gym closes too early at weekend. So last year, I checked with the CA Director of Sports and Fitness. He told me there were not so much need from residents and he shared some data with me which supported his claim. I was convinced with the number even I felt this is a chicken-egg issue ( when the gym closes earlier, less residents will come to gym later afternoon at weekend. When less residents come to gym later afternoon at weekend, the resident count will be low) . He told me if residents feel the need to close later and they should email the staff. Then the staff could count the need and may make proper changes on the operation hour. Please note the facility needs time for maintenance at weekend too.
So if you feel the gym should close a little later at weekend, please contact the following persons:
