Fitness Center Facility Rules

As a non-profit organization, it is the responsibility of both staff and members alike to take care of our equipment.  We ask that you take ownership of your workout space. Our facility rules are designed for the safety and comfort of all our members.  If we all work together to enforce the rules, the YWCA fitness facility will continue to be the great place that it is!
