Exercise at Home

Recognizing the desire from many of our members to keep moving at home during the COVID-19 shutdown, our exercise physiologists put together home exercise routines and videos. They were a big hit, so we’ve put them on our website for those times when you can’t make it to the gym. We hope you enjoy them!

No. Although we would love to see you in both places, you can sign up for yoga separately from the Fitness Center.
