  • Wellness Center to Close June 15-29 for Final Construction Phase

    We want to once again thank you for your patience during our Wellness Center Expansion Project. We’re very excited to announce that renovations are entering the final stages. In less than one month, our state-of-the-art, expanded fitness space will be complete. But before we can officially open our doors, unfortunately, we first have to close them.

    In order to complete the final phase of construction, the Avery Wellness Center will close at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 15. The Avery Wellness Center will re-open to members on Friday, June 29. While the Wellness Center is closed, the rest of the building will remain open.

    Boasting a bolder, brighter design, the new wellness center will feature increased square-footage, a new group exercise studio, and new cardio and strength machines. This additional square-footage will provide members with limitless opportunities to train smarter and more effectively.
