While we patiently wait for approval of a family changing area, we ask members with small children to be as considerate as possible when it is necessary to bring a small child of the opposite sex into the locker area. Please check the locker area and then escort child in when it is clear for them to enter while not imposing on the privacy of other members. You may take children into one of the side locker rooms if necessary. Do not leave children unattended at any time. We ask your cooperation in this serious matter until we get the family changing area situation approved. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the director.

Special Note Regarding Family Memberships

Children ages 14–15 who are covered by a family membership may use the weight room, balcony and cardio area in the gym if directly supervised by THEIR OWN parent at all times. These children will not be allowed to be supervised by older siblings or other adult members – no exceptions.

Special Challenges

If you have a disability and may require special accommodations in order to fully participate in the Fitness & Wellness Center’s Activities please contact the Director to discuss your specific needs.
