After a few long months, The REC Center will reopen on Monday, May 18th on a limited basis.  We will phase back into normal operations at a conservative pace as reopening in a safe and responsible manner is our top priority.

Our board of directors and administrative team has created a phased approach to reopening.  There is no perfect solution and we hope that we can accommodate as many members as we can during this time.  Phase 1 will be the most conservative approach, Phase 2 will have further loosened restrictions and Phase 3 will be return to normal operations.


  1. If you feel sick, have a cough or fever…STAY HOME
  2. Wash your hands often
  3. Avoid close contact
  4. Use PPE when you can
  5. Cover coughs and sneezes
  6. Clean and disinfect

Phase 1:

  • Reopen on May 18, 2020 with restricted access and limited hours

    2. Studio B – will offer group classes while socially distancing
    3. Gymnasium – will offer group classes while socially distancing

We understand that Phase 1 is restrictive, but we feel that we have a responsibility to be safe during this time.  We hope that on May 27, that the Governor further loosens restrictions and we can move onto our Phase 2 approach.  Please stay in touch with us via facebook and our website for updates.

We thank you for your support and understanding during this time and be assured that we want to get back to normalcy as soon as possible.  We look forward to being part of your health & fitness again!
