Niagara Falls Air Reserve station opens fitness facility

Late in August the 914th Air Refueling Wing at Niagara Falls Air Reserve held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new base fitness center.

The $14 million, 26,000-sq.-ft. facility construction started in November 2019. This facility replaces the existing mid-century old fitness building which is scheduled to be demolished.

The new facility provides state-of-the-art fitness equipment and a full-size gymnasium, which can be subdivided to support multiple activities simultaneously for individuals or units to accomplish fitness related requirements. In addition to being able to support sporting activities, this area was also designed to support the Air Force Physical Fitness Testing Program.  

Military & civilian officials will be present for the ribbon cutting ceremony and a tour of the facility is scheduled to follow.
