Entrance and Parking
Entrance to the Wellness Center is through the 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. The entrance will require a proximity card and these can be purchased at the front desk.
The Wellness Center is open 4:00 am – 12:00 am 7 days a week to active members.
The Wellness Center is staffed 7:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday-Friday.
Upon purchase of a Wellness Center membership package, each wellness member will receive their own proximity card. Your proximity card is to be used to access to the facility during unstaffed hours/weekends and for sign-in at the kiosk upon arrival. It is to be used in a responsible way and only by the individual it is issued to. The proximity cards will be used for billing purposes and to track the utilization of our wellness facility for future equipment updates/needs. Additionally, the proximity cards are an added security feature to the Wellness Center to provide all members with a safe environment in which to exercise.
A wide array of membership packages are available. Packages and prices vary depending on your individual or family needs with discount pricing for students, married couples, and senior citizens.
With the purchase of a membership, all members receive FREE access to Virtuagym, an electronic-based workout, and a nutrition program. The program gives access to pre-developed daily workouts, allows for participation in challenges, and provides nutritional recommendations specific to the user. The Rehabilitation Department staff members lead 1-hour Virtuagym informational training sessions on the last Thursday of every month pending wellness member needs.
