About CPR/AED Certification
This class is ideal for anyone who wants to know how to perform CPR if the need arises or for someone who needs a certification as part of a job requirement. The course covers CPR for adults, children and infants as well as Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use. All Franciscan Health Fitness Centers staff members are CPR/AED certified.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions with artificial breathing in an effort to manually revive an unresponsive person. Ultimately, the goal is to preserve intact brain function until additional measures can be taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) can be found in many public places, and are available for home use. These machines have pads or paddles to place on the chest during a life-threatening emergency. They use computers to automatically check the heart rhythm and give a sudden shock if, and only if, that shock is needed to get the heart back into the right rhythm.

Large & great schedule open til 11pm. Unfortunately the pool closes @9 or 9:30 & usually it’s the 20yd pool only, so I have to arrive even earlier if I want to swim in the 25 yd pool or to get laps in even for the 20 yd pool. I look forward to trying out the 25yd salt water pool. M...

The community is fantastic and getting to see the same faces everyday during my workouts is what gets me out of bed in the morning. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Clean, great facilities, mostly for the 40 and older crowd but a few young people as well. I go for the therapy pool, whirlpool, Sauna, steam room. But there is much more to get you right!

So far all I experienced was the pool. I went as a guest, & then we went to the changing room & showers to change into our suits. They do provide towels if you need it, I'm not sure about anything else yet. When you 1st walk into the room the pool is in, it smells nice. Not an ...

Lovely place with great and lovely people! The price is on the higher side, but you get your money’s worth! The facility and the trainers are A1! P.S. If you plan on leaving due to relocation or whatsoever reason, just make sure to call a month ahead or else you’re going to pay 50%...

A lot of good equipment and classes. Great and friendly staff. A bit pricey but well worth it if you go to the gym frequently. Spacious and nice locker room and swim area as well.

Very clean and organized. New layout is so much better. No longer looks like some old folks facility. (And I’m old!). Omni was a dump with old machines. Most machines are brand new and they have way more personnel caring for the facilities. A big improvement.

My husband and I have been members for quite a few years. We love the friendliness and support of the people here. They always welcome me with a smile. However, I would like to be put back on their email listing. For some reason, I am no longer receiving emails.

Love going to this location! Nice, clean facility with friendly and educated staff. The classes offered are great and led by top-notch teachers, but my favorite part has got to be the Kid Zone. The ladies who watch the kids are absolutely fantastic. What a wonderful setup and play ...

Good gym. Can get real packed about 3 times a day but it is not too bad. Nice equipment and the staff is nice and attentive if you need them. The only bad thing is they don’t allow your cell phones and I use to use my to record my swim technique. Other than that the place is great.
