Cardio Room

The Cardio Room lets you get into the zone for your cardio workouts. This room features two recumbent bikes, one upright bike, two ellipticals, and a treadmill. A large picture window overlooks the parade field and Lake Royer or you can watch tv during your workout.

Multi-Purpose ROom

The multi-purpose room is used for group fitness classes, pick-up volleyball, rentals, and more! When this room is not being used for a program or service, members can utilize the space to use the TRX straps, yoga balls, battle ropes and other specialized equipment in the room.
