Membership Dues

COVID-19 has placed a financial strain on many in our community. We discontinued billing and extended annual membership from the day we closed our doors. As we open our doors June 1, 2020, we will not resume billing until July 1, 2020. Your wellness is important to us, and we are excited to assist you as you return to your recreational activities with us.

We know some of you may not be ready to come back to the facility just yet. To help you stay on track with your fitness goals, we are offering at home fitness options for you. We offer pre-recorded workouts for you to enjoy your favorite instructors in the comfort and security of your own home. These services are included with your membership. Currently they are free to the community but will soon require your membership to access. We will not be charging additional for these services for our members.

Select Group Exercise classes are available via Zoom, registration is required. This can be done on the Spivi App or on our Group Exercise page.
