Fitness Classes
A wide variety of Group fitness classes are offered every day at a number of our facilities.  For more information or to sign-up for a class, please call the applicable fitness center.

Personal Training
Need one on one attention or a little peer pressure to keep you motivated? If you want to improve your fitness level, hiring a personal trainer can be a step in the right direction. A good trainer can help you set up a program that meets your goals. We have a staff of well educated and certified fitness professionals with varied backgrounds. Their job is to assess your fitness level, set up a program for you, and help keep you motivated. He or she will push you past your comfort level--something many find difficult to do on their own. Contact the fitness office or fitness centers for more information.
