We know that exercise is a proven immunity booster. We also know that social isolation can be detrimental to your physical, emotional, and mental health. However, as our community reopens, many in vulnerable populations are hesitant to enter public places, even with rigorous precautions in place.

The 4th Floor LifeFitness Room will serve vulnerable populations (immunocompromised and immunosuppressed members) during the hours listed below.  If you do not fit this criteria, please consider adjusting your workout schedule so that we may serve more members safely.
