Because we're “more than a gym” we’ve continued to provide child care, residential services, arts programming, camp, and more throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re here to serve our community when we’re needed.

And now we’re offering additional opportunities to our members with expanded limited programming including: lap swim and family time in our pools, outdoor group exercise classes, outdoor running programs, and access to our tracks, gymnasium/basketball courts, and racquetball/handball courts.

These programs are available by reservation only.
