Introducing Our Principles


The Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center's mission is to improve the health and well-being of Mayo Clinic employees, retirees, volunteers & their spouses by implementing effective wellness, practice, education and research strategies. Our vision is to be a global leader in wellness and we promise to provide a welcoming experience through quality service in a safe and supportive manner.

To uphold our mission and to best align with Mayo Clinic's culture of values, we have four principles to support a welcoming environment for all members. Click here to view the member handbook.

COMPASSION for each other. We want to show compassion to one another by the way we conduct ourselves in matters of clothing, language, helpfulness and generosity. Please consider each other and practice courtesy at all times. Here are ways we can practice this principle:

  1. Clothing should be appropriate for physical activity and provide substantial coverage of the torso. Read more.
  2. Share equipment with other members when performing multiple sets.
  3. Be considerate with aerosol sprays and other fragrances.

RESPECT for our facility. We take pride in this facility and all of its offerings. Here are ways we can practice this principle:

  1. Clean all equipment after use with the provided wipes.
  2. Place used towels in proper bins.
  3. Shower with soap before entering pool, whirlpool or steam room.

Your SAFETY is essential. We consider safety at all times and avoid unsafe or unhygienic practices, whether in the locker rooms, whirlpool/steam room areas or the fitness floor. Here are ways we can practice this principle:

  1. Avoid entering the fitness floor or studios with dirty or wet footwear.
  2. Avoid shaving in the steam rooms.
  3. Promptly reporting any safety concerns/incidents to staff.

Your PRIVACY is important. We respect each other's privacy by being mindful of phone usage and other technology that may be distracting or invasive to others around us. Here are ways we can practice this principle:

  1. Refrain from using phones and other mobile devices in the locker rooms.
  2. Refrain from taking any photos or videos in the facility unless given prior approval.
  3. Staff is committed to keeping your visit private and will not provide details of your visit without your permission.
