The Wellness Floor overlooks the Saginaw River, featuring a strength training Cybex and a Nautilus circuit. We have a fully-equipped free weight area including a Cybex cable cross system, Smith machine, hammer strength plate loaded circuit, assortment of dumbbells up to 100 pounds, flat bench chest press, incline benches, and squat racks.

In the cardiovascular equipment area, you will find an assortment of Life Fitness treadmills and ellipticals, upright and recumbent bikes, NuStep, Stairmasters, rowers, arm bikes, and Arc trainers. Many of these machines are equipped with personal television screens. We also have stretching mats, stability balls and other core training aids. Full facility members are able to enjoy unlimited use of all equipment in our Wellness Center.

All of our resistance machines and many of our cardio machines are linked to our FitLinxx program. FitLinxx is a workout tracking and coaching system that tracks strength and cardio workouts. This program allows members to keep track of every workout performed at our facility. The Wellness Center is also staffed daily for your assistance in order to make the best out of your workout.

Although youth and teen are required, a Wellness Center orientation is strongly encouraged for all members to learn how to properly use equipment. Sign up for your orientation at the membership desk.

Youth and Teen between the ages 10 and 15 are welcome on the Wellness Floor with an orientation performed by our Wellness Coaches.  Following the orientation, they must ask the wellness floor staff on duty for their red wrist band required to be worn each visit.

10-12 year olds are trained to use the treadmills and bikes.  Their parent must be present for the orientation and while their child is using the equipment.
13-15 year olds are able to use all of the equipment on the wellness floor after this training.

Helpful tips

  • Since they are still too young for our Kids Zone, children under 6 weeks of age may join parents in the Wellness Center as long as they are strapped into a car seat or stroller that does not block pathways or equipment
  • As a courtesy to other members, limit your time on all cardio equipment to 30 minutes during peak times or when others are waiting
  • After using equipment, please use the sanitizing wipes provided to wipe off equipment
  • Bring a towel for your workout, but please don’t use it to wipe off equipment
