We hope you are having a very happy holiday season. As we head into the New Year, we look forward to helping you achieve your health and fitness goals! We are pleased to share the following updates with you.

Pool Opening. We are excited that the pool will reopen on January 4th.

Please note that masks are required except when in the pool. To register, you will need to sign into the new HFC system (instructions below), and register to reserve a lane for lap swimming or space for open swim.
