The fitness room is a huge asset for all the employees.  My experience has been very positive as I use the room to maintain my level of fitness so I am prepared for my bi-annual Army National Guard physical fitness test. The machines are of a very high quality and truly makes a difference.  I believe I would not score as well on my test if I did not have access to this equipment.  My office is right across the hall from the room and I see employees all throughout the day, especially during their lunch time and after their shift using the facility.  There is a variety of equipment and the room is kept very clean and equipment in great condition.  Rob Green-Assistant Director, Public Works

Having work site access to the fitness room has changed my life.  I have lost weight and using the treadmill has strengthened my legs and ankles.  I work out during my lunch hour Monday-Friday. “It is perfect and very medicinal for me.” I don’t know what I’d do without it.!

The workout room has been a great asset to use on a daily basis.  It provides equipment for cardio and strength training.  We have been using the equipment for the past 5 years and it’s a wonderful alternative to joining a gym membership. We use a personal trainer once a week giving us proper techniques when using any equipment in the fitness room. Having the use of this facility has increased our stamina, mobility, balance, energy level and mental wellbeing.
