April 9, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- Beginning May 1, WMU Zest for Life members and others working out at West Hills Athletic Club will notice something of a "racquet" as Phase I of its renovation plans gets under way.

Renovations will include moving the fitness area, the basketball court and the jogging track to the front left three tennis courts, which will become a double-decked area with an elevator. Improvements will result in one large cardiotheatre, temperature-controlled fitness area, soundproof aerobic studio, and additional space and equipment. Phase I completion is scheduled for Sept. 1.

Phase II and Phase III will follow with renovations to the rest of the club. These targeted sites will include the lobby, tennis courts, and service desk. These remodeling plans are currently being displayed at the club. West Hills will remain open during the renovation period.
