Reserve a Workout Time in a Fitness Center

All fitness spaces, including Stewart Fitness Center, Studio 5, Koury racquetball/squash courts, and the PARC fitness center require users to reserve workout times. All workout times are 60 minutes, with 30 minutes between sessions for staff to clean the facilities and equipment. Reservations will be scheduled through IMLeagues. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one on IMLeagues or by downloading the IMLeagues app – you must use your Elon email address to create an account.

The reservation window opens every Thursday at 12:10pm for the following week. To reserve a workout time:

  • Select the “Workout Reservations” tab from the Elon page on IMLeagues to see available times
  • You can only select one workout time per day
  • If the time you want is full, you can add your name to the wait list and you will be contacted if a spot becomes available
  • Walk-ups are permitted in all reserved spaces if spots are available after 10 minutes following the start time – anyone who is able to get into the fitness center through a walk-up must still leave the facility at the end of the reservation time
