 COVID-19 protocols:

All membership options have a 1 year commitment.  If you cancel within the first year, there is a 30-day notice required and $125 early termination fee.

After the first year, the contract automatically rolls over to a month-to-month agreement. So there is no termination fee to cancel, just a 30 day notice required.

There is a one-hour time limit for the pool and two-hour time limit for the gym. The facility is open Monday-Friday from 6:00am-10pm and Saturday-Sunday from 8am-8pm.

Gold $140/month: Access to pool & fitness center at UES campus.

Gym (no pool) $104/month

Daytime $95/month: Access to pool & fitness center Monday-Friday only, between 8:30am – 3pm. No Weekends.

Young Professional (ages 18-25) $110/month: Access to pool & fitness center.
