We’ve made a few changes to ensure the safety of our members and staff

Our center is open and we look forward to seeing you. The health and safety of our members and employees is our top priority. We have developed a comprehensive safety plan adhering to all best practice protocols.

When you arrive: Members will enter through parking lot doors to complete a COVID-19 screening and will then check-in at the temporary front desk within the fitness center. When members leave, they will be required to check-out of the facility and exit the side door by the back stairwell near the locker rooms and Studio 1.

We also ask that you do your part to enhance the health and safety of our center by adhering to our member expectations. Please read our members expectations before visiting and refer to our Welcome Back FAQ for more information.

If you have any questions or comments, please alert a staff member, email us at membership@osumc.edu or click the QR code for an online form. All submissions can remain anonymous and will help us make sure we are meeting your expectations.
