How do your hours work
Because we have found that daytime weekday hours are not very popular, we decided there's no Point keeping the place open during that time. However, to accomodate anyone that may want to work out during those hours (if you have a day off, or want to get your workout in earlier, or for whatever reason), we offer Hours-On-Demand from 6a to 4p Monday through Friday. If you want to come in during that time, all you have to do is select "Open the Gym" on the calendar, (you can also call to request the time) at least 10 hours in advance.
