Class change for Thursday, June 18.  FIT Camp will be canceled for the day as Mishell is attending a conference. In place of Pilates, Lauren will teach a POWER Yoga session.
Men’s Room Toilet:  While there appears to be nothing structurally deficient with the toilet in the men’s room it has overflowing with regularity.  Please refrain from excessive tissue usage.  Better yet, use the 4-stall bathroom option just down the hallway – thank you!
