Construction has resumed after our mandatory shut-down due to the pandemic. Check out photos of construction progress, posted <HERE>
February 20, 2020
We are excited to communicate many of the changes we’ve made to ensure the health, safety and happiness of our members and the community! Here’s some highlights and updates:
Temporary Wall Installed in Water Park Pool
On February 20, a temporary construction wall will be installed in the area behind the waterslide. We have been assured that noise other disturbances will be kept to a minimum and that the pool can remain open during the time.
Mirrors installed in the Cardio/Strength Studio
You asked, we listened. There are now mirrors in the portable studio allowing you to check form and ensure that you are completing your moves correctly.
Air quality improvement
The Portable Studio ventilation is through the wall units. These wall units provide heat and air conditioning. In addition, if the units are used on fan only mode, they will pull outside air into the space which provides fresh air as well. We have also added mounted fans to both of the Cardio Strength Studio and the Spin Studio for greater ventilation at higher, head level.
To keep you in the loop and excited about the finished product, we have installed signs showing some of the new machines that will come with the completion of the fitness center. We will update these signs frequently to provide updates and information of what’s happening and what’s next.

ABOUT THE EXPANSION
Current plans include a 3,445 square foot expansion of the fitness center. This new space will allow for the addition of dozens of new machines, new dedicated stretching, training and TRX areas as well as expanded weight area. Additionally, an expansion will be added on the current grassy courtyard to accommodate a new dedicated spin room and new studio space.
New Spin Room and Program Space
Plans include the addition of a program space and new expanded spin studio, doubling the existing spin space. Future space will be ‘roughed-in’ on a second floor addition, above the new expanded space. This will allow the Y to provide additional programming space to youth, seniors and members of our community impact programs including Veterans Wellness, THRIVE cancer wellness, and Back to You for substance abuse recovery.
Universal Locker Room
Renovations include the expansion and renovation of the youth male and female locker rooms to create a renovated universal locker room with over 20 single-occupancy or family changing, toilet and showering spaces to accommodate all special situations.
