"A Community that SWEATS Together, STAYS Together."

We want to provide a safe, encouraging, and positive environment for adults, kids, and athletes of all ages to learn, improve, and reach their health and fitness goals. Most importantly we want to be a place that people leave healthier and happier than when they walked in.


February 2019 HOT TOPIC: New Policies for Kids Zone & Athlete's Area



It has been brought to several coaches attention recently, that frequently the Athlete’s Area seating at the box is littered with clothes, bags and children leaving nowhere to sit. Because many of our members enjoy hanging out before and/or after class, we are implementing a new policy for both the Athlete’s Area and Kids Zone.

If you are an athlete, meaning you are there to workout, you are welcome to sit in the Athlete’s Area. Children, regardless of age, must be in the Kids Zone at all times, unless they are participating in an upcoming class or just completed a class. Children who are able to do so themselves are allowed to leave the Kids Zone to use the restroom.

In an effort to keep the Athlete’s Area clutter-free and seating available for sitting, please place all bags, clothing, etc. in the cubbies next do the back door. There will be more cubbies and coat space coming soon.

Measles Prevention

As you've probably heard there is a measles outbreak occurring near us. To help protect our more vulnerable athletes, coaches and their babies, we would appreciate our members take the following into consideration:


  • Measles is airborne and lingers for up to two hours, so anyone showing signs of being sick should stay home.
  • Do not bring any unvaccinated children to the gym. This is to protect them and others. 
  • If you have any known exposures to the outbreak please notify us immediately so we can discuss the actions we must take to ensure no further exposure occurs.
  • If you are not sure if you’ve been exposed, click on the following links:
    Exposure Sites in Washington | Exposure Sites in Oregon
  • If you have been sick or think you might be catching something, please wipe down ALL equipment used including bamboo sticks, jump ropes, bars, med balls, dumbbells, kettlebells, handles and seats on the rowers, bikes, ski ergs, etc. Please wipe up your sweat!


Thank you so much for understanding and your compliance. It takes a village, and we want to keep our village strong and healthy!

“Measles symptoms begin with a mild fever, cough, runny nose and red eyes, followed by a rash.

If you or your child show signs of measles, call your health care provider before coming in so they can limit exposing anyone else in the waiting room.

"Measles can be so contagious that you can be in a room, and if you’re susceptible, two hours after someone with measles left, and still get the disease," said Dr. Alan Melnick, the director of public health for Clark County.”
