YWCA Fitness Center's COVID Policies

Stay In The Know With YWCA Fitness Through COVID-19

We are excited to announce the re-opening of our Co-Ed Fitness Center on Monday, September 14th at 7am.

Monthly membership auto-drafts will be reactivated on that date, and pre-existing fitness membership accounts will be billed on the same day of the month as previously billed before YWCA’s closure in March. Individuals that are not ready to resume a fitness membership may contact YWCA’s fitness team by emailing membershiprenewal@ywcacentralcarolinas.org to request that an account remain frozen.

Our members will have access to group exercise classes, our indoor fitness facilities, and our indoor pool.

  • Our childcare room will be closed at this time.

Helping to Keep You Safe

The health and safety of our staff, program participants and fitness center members remains our top priority. We are emphasizing safety and wellness by:

  • Enhancing sanitization of equipment, surfaces and areas.
  • Adding day-time cleaning staff to the facility.
  • Adjusting hours to allow for more robust cleaning.
  • Adding hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipe stations.
  • Requiring masks for all individuals in the facility.
  • Taking temperatures before team members, members and participants enter our facilities.
  • Reducing capacity to maintain physical distancing.
  • Implementing new COVID-19 education, training, and protocols for staff.
