Reopening: July 6 with restrictions
No fees for current members in July & August!

Due to the COVID-19 closure, monthly membership fees were not charged in April, May and June. And, because we understand that everyone may not be ready to resume working out yet, we won’t be charging you, whether you use your membership or not, until September 1. You must be a current all-inclusive member to receive July and August FREE. Annual members will also get April through August free, with a 5-month extension on their membership.

  • Current monthly members won’t be charged for July and August. Fees will resume on September 1.
  • Current annual members will get July & August free and your membership will be extended for five months (to cover the no payment period from April-August).


In addition,

  • The Fitness service desk will be on the first floor. Make sure you have your membership card for no-contact scanning. If you do not remember your membership card, you must show a legal form of ID to gain entry.
  • Face coverings over your nose and mouth are required while entering/exiting the facility and whenever not exercising.
  • Members will be asked to sanitize their hands upon arrival and to wipe down equipment and machines before and after use. You’ll notice additional sanitizing and cleaning stations throughout the building.
  • Social distancing is necessary. The facility layout, space between open machines, walking track guidelines and more will reflect our safety precautions. Refer to posted signage.
  • New group fitness class sizes will be implemented. Fitness staff will fully clean and sanitize exercise rooms before and after use.
  • Personal training will be offered in the fitness center.
  • The facility will close mid-day, during the low-usage period of 1 to 3pm, for a thorough cleaning.
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of the building and equipment will be conducted. The facility will also be sanitized nightly with an electrostatic mister.
  • Do not visit the fitness center if you have been recently exposed to someone who is COVID-positive or if you have a cough, fever, fatigue, or are otherwise sick and may pose a risk to others.


Indoor Pools

  • Lap swim is by reservation only. Reservation must be made 24 hours prior to visit. (More information to come)
  • Warm water therapy pool will open but classes are not being scheduled at this time. (More information to come when we have it.)

What we ask of our members:

  • Members should wear face coverings over their nose and mouth when entering/exiting the facility and whenever not exercising.
  • Members should utilize hand sanitation stations upon entering and exiting the building.
  • Members with membership card must scan on first floor. If a member does not have their membership card, they must show a legal form of ID to gain entry.
  • Members should maintain 6 feet of distance during exercise.
  • Members should clean and sanitize equipment (e.g., weights & treadmills) before and after use.
  • Equipment should not be shared between members at the same time unless from the same household.
  • If you are sick, we ask that you stay home as a courtesy to your fellow members and Fountain View staff.
