Rec Center Schedule and Membership

From Recreational Sports:

The annual campuswide steam plant shutdown that will take place August 3-18 means there will be no heat or hot water in the Recreation Center. The facility will be open as usual, but there will be no hot water for showers, and the pool water temperature will become colder than usual.

All of the wood floors will undergo their annual refinishing August 10-21, so rec gym, aerobics studio, main gym, multipurpose rooms 2 and 3, and the racquetball court will be off-limits for workout purposes during this time. There will also be a strong odor from the refinishing materials in the facility for most of the first week, so plan accordingly. The cardio room, weight room, track, and pool will be open as usual.

As of June 30, all group fitness classes temporarily ended, except for the hydrorobics class in the pool. The cycling classes and TRX class from the summer schedule will be held again the week of August 24. The fall semester group fitness classes will begin August 31, and that schedule will be posted later.

Also, membership renewals for existing faculty/staff/spouses who have either the full Recreation Center or Pool membership begin on August 17. These memberships are good until August 31st.

New faculty and staff who would like to work out in the recreation center now and have their health insurance through the College can utilize the Wellness Connection benefit, which covers the cost of the membership. They will have to submit a Wellness Connection log sheet for the month of August in order for their access to the facility to be paid for by Harvard Pilgrim. They will then need to sign up for the full-year membership beginning September 1.

If a faculty or staff member doesn’t have health insurance through the College to utilize the Wellness Connection benefit, they can pay $30 for the month of August. New year memberships do not go on sale until September 1. The full year Recreation Center membership costs $480 for faculty and staff from September 1-August 31.

Faculty or staff who would just like to use the pool can do so now as well by securing a month pass and then sign up for a full year pool membership beginning September 1st. There is no charge for this membership.

All membership inquiries can be made at the front desk of the Recreation Center.
