Need to squeeze in a workout between classes or after work? At the Fitness Center, we have plenty of cardiovascular equipment, including stair steppers, treadmills, elliptical machines, bicycles, and rowers; strength training equipment and a variety of free weights; and a spacious exercise area for group classes. Amenities include free towels, free day lockers (bring your own lock or you can purchase one here), and showers with private dressing areas in the locker room.

Our experienced fitness staff are on-hand to provide fitness assessments and answers to your questions! Explore all our programs, and be sure to fill out a membership enrollment form before your first visit.
