Where is it located?
Our 24/7 Fitness Center is located in our former Community Room/Fitness Studio.
What equipment is available in that area?
We have treadmills, arc trainers, dumbbells, and Cybex weight machines along with other equipment like yoga mats, medicine balls, jump ropes, exercise bands, etc.
What are the hours of operation?
This Fitness Center is truly 24/7—meaning it is not just for those who work out at night! It is also open during the day as an alternative to working out upstairs.
Is it staffed?
No, the Fitness Center is not staffed. For safety, there will be a landline phone to call for emergencies and an AED machine and First Aid Kit. There are also security cameras installed to allow remote monitoring of that area.
How will I enter 24/7 Fitness?
During regular business hours, members will still access the facility by checking in at the front desk. After regular business hours, members will scan their own membership card to unlock the separate outside entrance door into the 24/7 Fitness area. It is located on the North side of the building next to the Shipping and Receiving (East of the main entrance). You must use your own membership card and no one else’s (not even other family member’s cards).
How will you know if I let my friend in?
All members will need to scan membership cards individually to gain access to the 24/7 Fitness area and will be held to the Honor Code. YMCA staff check usage and camera footage daily to identify anyone letting non-members in.
