Chancellor Lyre Murao led the opening of the Outdoor Gym after the Flag-Raising Ceremony on October 2, 2023. A total of ten pairs of gym equipment were opened for the use of the UPMin students and staff. The Outdoor Gym is located on the University Library grounds and is open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
“Health and wellness are very important in achieving a sense of community here in the university. This outdoor gym will help us build that community,” said Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao.
The Outdoor Gym is an initiative of the Department of Human Kinetics. University Librarian Briccio Merced Jr. offered the University Library grounds as location. The Human Resource Development Office and the Office of Student Affairs co-organized the launch event.
