Community Rooms

Community rooms include a Teen Center fully equipped with music, television, computers and table games. The community room is ideal for classes, quiet activities and meetings. There is a kitchen, a number of lounge areas and a fully equipped conference room.

Locker Rooms

Understanding your family's needs, we offer three private family locker rooms with showers. We also offer two youth (girls' and boys') and two adult (men's and women's) locker rooms with showers. Plenty of full-size lockers are available for day use (bring your own lock), and we offer small lockers for rent for a nominal monthly fee. Cedar-lined saunas are located in the adult locker rooms.

  • Do not leave valuables in the locker room. The Y is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items.
  • Keep food/drink confined to designated areas.
  • Only the small size lockers are available for rent, all others are designed for daily use.
  • Remember to walk, as the floors may be slippery when wet.
  • Help us keep the locker rooms clean by picking up after yourself.

ADULT LOCKER ROOMS (MENS AND WOMENS)
Adult lockers rooms are for adults only. Each adult locker room has a sauna. Youth members and participants (defined as those eligible for a Youth Membership: high school students and younger) should use the Youth Locker Rooms. Please note that infants/children are not allowed in adult locker rooms even when accompanied by an adult.

FAMILY/HANDICAP-ACCESSIBLE LOCKER ROOMS
These three individual locker rooms are handicap-accessible and include showers, sinks, and toilets. Lockers are available just outside the locker rooms.

YOUTH LOCKER ROOMS (BOYS AND GIRLS)
Youth locker rooms are for kids and young adults in high school. Younger children often need a parent to go in the locker room to help. When the Family (individual) locker rooms are full parents can change their children in the youth locker rooms. The correct locker room to use is based on the gender of the parent, not the child. Fathers can go in the boys locker room and Mothers can go in the girls locker room.

Fitness Room and Aerobics Room

The air-conditioned fitness room contains a Cybex strength training circuit, assorted aerobic conditioning stations, a stretching area and free weight equipment. Televisions and music enhance the workouts and the view over the gyms and pools creates a spectacular setting. A suspended wood flooraerobics studio/group exercise room with mirrors and dance barre is perfect for aerobics, dance, spinning, boxing and martial arts classes. Members age 18 and older may have full use of the Fitness Center. Members age 14 through 17 may use the Fitness Center after completing an equipment orientation with one of our staff. Members age 12 and 13 may use the Fitness Center after registering for the Youth and Family Workout Program.

Fitness Center Orientation - The objective of this 60-minute orientation is to introduce members to the fitness center and start them on their first fitness program in the facility. Members learn proper settings on strength training equipment and how to operate cardiovascular equipment. Recommendations for amount of weight and number of repetitions will also be discussed. This session is free to members and is recommended for all new members. Orientation is mandatory prior to Fitness Center use by youths age 14 through 17 and strongly encouraged for adult members new to the Fitness Center. Please call 443-4112x27 or stop by the Fitness Center to make an appointment.
