We know that many of our members have missed coming to Open Gym, and we’ve missed having you. We listened to your feedback and are very excited to announce that we will be reopening our gymnasium for Open Gym starting this Friday, October 23.

Registration:

  • Fitness members must register in advance in order to attend an Open Gym slot.
  • Registration must be made by calling our welcome desk at 412-828-8566. Registration will not be accepted via email and will not be on Mindbody. 
  • Registration will be available beginning when the Center opens the day of the slot you are reserving. For example, registration for Open Gym on Friday at 6:30pm begins when the Center opens at 6am on Friday.
  • When calling to make your reservation, you can only register people on your membership. For example, if you are bringing three people for Open Gym, you must provide all three names, and all three must be members of your family on your membership.

Schedule (all slots are full gym):

  • Fridays – 2:00 – 3:30pm and 6:30 – 8:00pm
  • Saturdays – 11:45am – 1:15pm and 1:30 – 3:00pm
  • Sundays – 11:45am – 1:15pm and 1:30 – 3:00pm

Members:

  • Open Gym time is available for our fitness members. This is in order to limit the number of people in the gymnasium and ensure that the maximum amount of members are able to take advantage of the limited Open Gym times.
  • Fitness members age 13+ may use the Open Gym unaccompanied. Fitness members ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Please register for only one time slot per day so that all of our fitness members will have an opportunity to enjoy the gym.

Safety Protocols:

  • Capacity will be limited to 20 people maximum per Open Gym time slot.
  • Members must bring their own basketballs; the Center will not provide any equipment.
  • Masks must be worn at all times when walking through the Center to and from the gymnasium. Masks may be removed when engaged in activity inside the gymnasium.
