GRAND REOPENING!!! No pomp and circumstance – the JFK fitness facility is OPEN – so come on back down – can’t use this as an excuse for not working out any longer!  While the paint and carpet are finished we are still doing a bit o’ touchups: signage, and equipment placement.  We just received two new ellipticals.  We are awaiting the arrival of two treadmills (3 antiquated models have departed) and new fitness mats.  The weight machine and free weight area rearrangement will be complete by midweek.  To comply with liability insurance recommendations we removed a few machines which will afford us necessary floor/bench space in addition to an accessory rack where attachments for cable machinery will be required to reside – no longer lounging on the floor where members may trip on them.

Excuse of the Week: “I’m afraid I’ll create muscular imbalances!”

Quote of the Week: "We come into this world head first and go out feet first; in between, it is all a matter of balance.”  Paul Boese

Reminder – Fitness Center Renovation.  We will be closing our doors for the entire week of Aug 3-7.  We will be replacing the 13-year old carpets and repainting the entire facility.  In addition we will be adding new fitness equipment.  We realize this is an inconvenience to many members but we must take advantage of GSA’s ability to help fund these renovations with year end money at this the traditionally lowest utilization month (August) of the year.  See y’all On Monday August 10th!
