  • Fitness and Strength Equipment is spread out so everyone should be at least 10 feet apart.
  • The indoor track is closed to walking and running so that cardio and strength machines can be placed onto it and to also avoid close contact.
  • Bring your own bottle of water.  Water fountains are turned off except for the bottle filler.
