Abstract:

Hill Air Force Base HAFB has two fitness facilities, the Hess Fitness Center and the Westside Gym. The Hess Fitness Center contains the indoor swimming pool and is adjacent to the indoor tennis courts and outdoor jogging track. The Hess Fitness Center is the primary fitness center for the base, containing most of the required core functional areas such as a gymnasium, cardiovascular area, racquetball courts, locker rooms, and strength training areas. However, the building housing the fitness center is deficient in several respects. Specifically, the building space is substandard for both fitness and administrative functions as defined by the United States Air Force USAF Fitness Facilities Design Guide USAF, 1999, the building has significant seismic concerns, lighting is inadequate in the corridors, the gymnasium and parking lot are undersized, there is no covered access from the parking lot, and the buildings electrical load is generally at capacity. Additionally, the only climate control for the building is heating and ventilation. There is no air conditioning other than small evaporative cooling and window units.
