MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP HOLD

For your convenience, you may ask to place your monthly membership fees on hold up to two (2) consecutive months within

a twelve-month period. All holds begin on the first day of the month and will automatically reinstate at agreed reinstatement date. To place your monthly membership on hold, you must notify the Welcome Center, in writing/email, by the 15th of the month before.

We bring kids, adults, and families closer together, encourage good health, and foster connections through fitness, indoor pools, sports, fun, and shared interests. Our members enjoy group exercise classes, walking/jogging tracks, and encouragement from our Wellness Coaches. We have the resources to help you learn new things and make new friends at any stage in your life. Join us today!
