Update as of September 27, 2021

As of September 27, 2021, Dan Rosenthal announced that the indoor mask mandate has been lifted due to the case rate in Newtown falling below 10%. Individuals who are not vaccinated must still wear masks indoors.

We are constantly monitoring and assessing protocols based on the most current information and will make necessary updates accordingly. Please note that for everyone’s well-being, fitness members must clean the machines after each use. And, if you are not feeling well, please do not come in until you are feeling better.  Thank you for your continued flexibility and care for the health and welfare of our community!
