Entrance and Parking
Entrance to the Wellness Center is through the new East Decatur Street entrance. Parking is on the south side of the building, in front of the building, or in the parking garage. You can also enter the Wellness Center through the parking garage. Entrance after-hours will require a proximity card and these can be purchased at the front desk.
The Wellness Center is open 7 days a week from 4:00 a.m. until Midnight.
Normal business hours at the Wellness Center are Mondays thru Fridays 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
If you wish to use the facility before 7:00 a.m. or after 5:30 p.m., or on Saturdays and Sundays, you will be required to purchase a proximity card to let you into the facility. The proximity cards are an added security feature to the new facility to provide all members with a safe environment in which to exercise. Each member wishing to use the facility during these “non-business ” hours MUST purchase their own proximity card and use it in a responsible way for themselves only.
Membership packages are available and prices vary depending on what your needs are. Discounts are available to senior citizens and married couples. Stop in or call for exact prices. Membership fees are due upon joining and no refunds or transfers can be made.
Prior to use of the facility, all individuals MUST receive an orientation by a Rehabilitation Department staff member. Appointments are required for orientation and may be scheduled by calling the Wellness Center. During this time, a short tour of the facility will be given as well as directions on using the equipment.
