Group Exercise Classes (Pilates & Fitcamp) have been canceled for Thursday, Dec 24.

While the fitness center is open all day today to employees located in the building, it will be closed off to outsiders after 12:30pm – so if you work outside of the building hurry over to grab your last workout before Santa comes to town.

Happy & Healthy Holidays!
