The Penn Fitness Center has opened for the school year.

The Fitness Center and all of its activities are open to all PHM residents who are 9th grade students or older. Memberships are free for current Penn students, $10 per month for residents, and $7 per month for senior citizens.

Here are the hours for the fitness center. PNN will post exceptions to these hours in separate posts should they arise, though in general the fitness center is closed when the school is closed.

Monday-Friday 5:45am-7:45am
Monday-Thursday 5:30pm-9:00pm
Saturday 8:00am-Noon

From Monday through Thursday, there is a walkers-only time from 5:30-6:30pm. The basketball courts will be closed during this time.

Open Basketball is on Mondays and Thursdays from 6:45 to 8:45pm, and is open to PHM residents who are 9th graders or older.

Pickleball is on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30pm.

The weight room will be closed in the mornings, and in the evenings until 5:30 due to strength coach conditioning.

If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Garrett, the Fitness Center Director, at or at (574) 254-2870.
