All food or drink must remain on the white, grey and black tile flooring.
At this time, selected classes will offer child care on a first-come, first-served basis at the rate of $2 per fitness class/open gym. This is only offered for those classes that advertise that childcare is provided. (Eligible for children 8 weeks to 10 years old. Please check the website for fitness classes or open gyms that have child care provided for those events.)

Apparel with inappropriate messages or advertisements are not acceptable. Athletic shoes must be worn at all times (no open-toed shoes or boots). Please be modest with all clothing choices and help maintain a safe, comfortable environment.
Our orientation class will cover all the uses of the equipment, access to the building, regulations and procedures. We do have security cameras in operation that record 24/7 that protect the Sports & Fitness Center, as well as other parts of the building. You are responsible for following the procedures.
The annual membership fee for the Sports & Fitness Center (including access to the Gym, Weight Room, & Locker Room) is $65.00 a year per person/$120.00 a year for a family membership. General fitness classes will all cost $5.00 per class, unless a specialty class (suchas a “Mother and Me” (i.e. baby yoga), Boot Camp fitness classes, etc. will be priced accordingly).

It will be opening early this fall (date to be determined) when the final equipping of the weight room, medical & safety equipment, weight machines are in place and properly secured, security and orientation materials are finalized. The Weight Room will be secured and only those that are qualified will receive an access key and be able to enter.
