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.

Nice facility and lots of options to get in shape. Did a tour and didn't sign up. When I went it was $90 registration and then $60 monthly. (minus like $7 for college students) but they said it would go up in November to $99 or $150 a month

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.
