What are the safety and security measures for the facility?

The facility will be monitored by a video surveillance system for security purposes. Staff will review the video on a daily basis to address any security concerns and monitor for appropriate usage. We highly recommend that you exercise with another member who has 24/7 access, when doing so outside of staffed hours of operation. A telephone is located at the fitness desk in case of emergency. In the event of an emergency immediately dial 911.


Why are you implementing 24/7 access?

This is in response to member and community feedback asking for longer/extended hours. We’ve heard you and want to meet the growing needs of those with varying schedules.
