A large, bright weight and cardio room is the ideal place to embark on your own fitness journey. The facility features treadmills, elliptical machines, rowing machines, stationary bikes, and a circuit weight area. A large area of the room is dedicated to free weights, with benches and other supporting equipment. Room for stretching and floor exercises make up the rest of the square footage.

For the protection of the fitness equipment, proper workout attire is required when using the fitness room.

  • Workout Attire — Sweats, spandex, workout shorts, t-shirts, or warm-ups are required while in the Fitness Areas. NO bare chests, cut-offs, jeans, sports bras, swimsuits, or street pants are allowed.

Participants who use the weight room must be 16 or older. Youth who are 14 or 15 may also use the weight room if certified. Call (303) 384-8100 for more information.
