A grand re-opening will be held at the fitness center at Mount Wachusett Community College’s Gardner campus on Saturday, Jan. 6 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. to celebrate the new name of Mount Fitness.
“Our goal is to a create a new energy and push for our fitness center. We want everyone to know that we are open to the public,” said Director of the Fitness & Wellness Center Jared Swerzenski as he explained the decision to rebrand the center as Mount Fitness. “I want people to know that we are not only a fitness center, but we are a community center as well. We are open to the public and we welcome everyone who wants to better themselves through fitness.”
The Mount Wachusett Community College Fitness and Wellness Center has been open to the public since 1995 and offers everyday low price memberships for individuals and families. Unlike other clubs, there are no fees for group fitness and yoga classes, pool use, or tanning.
“We pride ourselves on being a Community Fitness Center. I am proud of the staff we have. A center can have all the new equipment in the world, but without a friendly and knowledgeable staff it won’t function right,” said Swerzenski who said the fitness center offers something for all levels and interests. “We have the most options to provide members whether it be basketball, racquetball, competition pool, swim lessons, cardio and weight equipment, Silver Sneakers classes, 85 group exercise classes a week, kid care, summer camps, pickleball, and the friendliest and most dedicated staff in the region.”
The grand re-opening will be held on Saturday, Jan. 6 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 444 Green Street in Gardner and feature light refreshments. In honor of the new name and logo, free one-day memberships will be given out for use during the re-opening and there will be a bounce house and free childcare. The first 100 people to attend will also receive a free gift.
