Free Weight Area Renovation


We have some exciting news that our free weight area will be renovated in December! Here's what you'll want to know for the coming weeks of construction at the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center.

The free weight area will be closed for renovations beginning Monday, Dec. 11, 2017 at 10am and reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 at 4:30am.

Renovations taking place in the free weight area include:

  1. New layout to make the space more versatile
  2. Removal of fitness desk to expand the free weight area and the addition of locker space
  3. New flooring will be installed
  4. Installation of a new, custom built Olympic platform
  5. All new free weight equipment                                                                   

IMPORTANT: While the free weight area is closed, the Training Zones, Member Rig Area, and Generose location will be open for members to use. You can park at Generose anytime after 1:30pm. Click here for parking details for our facility. 

These updates will be well worth the wait and the layout will be more efficient and conducive to a free weight area.

Not sure what to do during the free weight area renovation? Here is a list of ideas and alternatives:

  1. Try a drop-in class, such as Strength, Indo Row, Yoga, Fusion or our many other classes offered daily
  2. Utilize the training zones on both the fitness floor or the track level, which feature some free weight equipment
  3. Utilize the equipment and space in empty studios for your own workout when no class is in session
  4. Use the newly updated pools. Swim laps, do a HIIT workout or consider attending a class
  5. Try out our many grab-n-go workouts that you can perform at the facility or even in your own home

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we bring these exciting new changes to the free weight area.
