We want you to be comfortable when working out! Proper athletic attire is required for all fitness classes, and this typically means athletic shirts and tops, shorts, or workout pants. Shirts must be worn at all times. Please do not wear jeans, street shoes, sandals, or office shoes. Sandals are OK in the locker rooms and in the aquatic areas; however, gym shoes or sneakers are required on the fitness floor. It is also highly recommended that you wear water shoes for aquatic classes.
Hydration is essential for a safe and effective workout. Bringing a water bottle or electrolyte replacement beverage is a terrific idea. It's mandatory to bring water and a towel to all cycling classes, since you'll really work up a sweat.
All non-fee-based exercise classes are first-come, first-serve. For your safety and the consideration of other members, there is no admittance to group exercise classes 5 minutes after classes have started. If you need to leave the class early, please inform the instructor.
Pilates Reformer, TRX classes, and certain Boot Camp small group training are fee-based and must be scheduled and paid for in advance at the front reception desk.
