Hawaii Loa Fitness Center


HPU currently offers a fitness center on the Hawaii Loa Campus (underneath the dining commons).  This fitness center is free and accessible to all students, faculty and staff with a valid HPU ID card.  With the entry card scanning system, University affiliates can utilize the gym 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, just by swiping their card outside the door.  The fitness center offers almost everything the general student would need to get in a good workout, including: eliptical machines, treadmills, free weights, medicine balls, and a variety of options for those seeking advanced lifting and training. 

Recreational Sports Equipment

The Hawaii Loa Fitness Center also has equipment available for use.  Located directly in front of the restroom, students can find an array of sports items that can be borrowed and returned the same day.  To encourage more use of this equipment and the courts, HPU is instilling an honor policy, in hopes that the equipment can be used and returned in a timely fashion, for others to enjoy as well.  For questions or comments about the equipment please contact Campus Recreation at 544-9370.

Free Yoga Classes: Every Wednesday (Time TBA)

HPU students now have the opportunity to take free yoga classes right on campus.  The day and times of classes will be finalized soon.  Arrive early, as there is limited space and students will be able to participate on first come, first serve basis.  Instructed by formally trained teacher, Mr. Guilherme Alves who brings a wealth of knowledge about Yoga theory, discipline, and lifestyle from his training in Brazil.  Additional questions please contact Campus Recreation at
