Facility Info

Our mission

The mission of the Reiner Wellness Center is to provide a fitness and aquatic facility with courteous, dependable and knowledgeable assistance for the improved health of our patrons, all for the glory of God.

Our history

The plans and financing for a health complex were voted on in January 1977. Architect Larry Enersen of Clark & Enersen was hired in January and the finances were approved in February of that year.

A construction contractor was hired and construction began in May of 1978. Construction was projected to be completed September 1979. In the summer of 1981, the pool opened for student use as well as for community swimming lessons.

In May 1981, the Union College Health Complex became officially known as the Larson Lifestyle Center, named after a physician by the name of Dr. Ernest Larson, who gave generously for the completion of the complex.

Our future

Union College is currently raising funds to expand its fitness and wellness facilities. The AdventHealth Complex will encompass the current facility as well as a new 40,000 square foot field house which will connect to the existing building. The upgraded facility will include much larger weight and cardio rooms, two gymnasiums, a turf field, indoor running track and new entrance. Learn more about the Fit for the Future campaign or make a gift to be part of this exciting expansion.

The renamed Reiner Wellness Center is housed in the AdventHealth Complex, and the Reiner Wellness Center's pool retains the Larson name. Construction on the new facility is currently underway and scheduled to be completed in next summer (2024).
