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.

I have never been a part of a gym that feels like home, that feels like family. Franciscan is it! This gym is the best place to work out, go hard in the paint, sweat and have a great time! Best membership I have ever utilized. Totally the best!
Let me start by saying that I come from a top of the line gym but due to moving I needed to switch gyms. This gym is not bad at all. The energy in the gym is good. People are serious about their workouts here. Gym is not modern but has everything you need. I greet staff more often ...

Enjoy using the facilities. Never crowded. Open 24/7 perhaps the reason for never being too busy. Lots of equipment to use and extra classes are free with membership.

Much smaller than the Schererville location but a nice clean facility. Staff was very nice & the equipment was in good shape. Locker rooms were nice & clean. It's small but still very nice.

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.
