If your physician has instructed you to begin an exercise program due to specific injuries or medical conditions, our Medical Membership program is perfect for you! Our personal trainers can help guide you through a safe and effective exercise program that will get you on the road to recovery.
Our CFPs at Franciscan are trained to help you address the behaviors that have kept you from eating right, staying active and making your health a priority. They can also help you with other issues, including inactivity and stress. CFPs give you the tools you’ll need to overcome any challenges to achieving improved health and well-being.
All new members are offered a free assessment with one of our exercise specialists. Our specialists determine a baseline for future goals by taking your measurements. Based on your information, your specialist will help you decide which type of training best fits your personal goals. These assessments are non-invasive, non strenuous, and only take about 35 - 50 minutes to complete. A reassessment is recommended every 3 months. To schedule your assessment, simply contact our Fitness Department to get started.
Now that your physician has made it clear that an overall exercise plan is necessary to sustain proper health, we would love to help you get on track. Our personal trainers can design a program that will help you increase your strength as well as your lean body mass.

A great health club where everyone feels welcome. Staff are very friendly and offer options depending upon your fitness level. This isn't like other clubs where you are there more to be "seen " rather than to exercise.
