We will have new hours until December 8th. Our new hours are listed below.

We also will only be open until 5 pm on November 25th and Closed on November 26th so that our staff can spend time with their loved one.

We still need volunteers to work our morning/night shifts from ( 5-8 pm M-TH) and (8-12 pm Saturdays). If you volunteer two times a month the incentive is very good. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Courtney at Courtney.Toteff@myeagles.org. Thank you!!

No group Exercise classes.

There will be no Group Exercise classes per the Governor's new executive order starting Wednesday, November 18th, 2020. Stay tuned for changes as they impact the Fitness Center and classes.

We have a new class that will be starting soon we hope. Nan Bauer would like to offer an online intro to her class during this time.

During this new restriction period, Nan Bauer will be offering free 45-minute SHINE classes to any interested Columbia Fitness Center members via Google Hangouts. Please contact her at shinewithnan@gmail.com if you'd like the link.

Misson Statement.

To enhance the quality of fitness in the school and community through our classes, amenities and the programs that we offer. To have a positive impact on the well being of everyone that visits the Fitness Center, while keeping the school as the center of the community activity.

A few changes are in store for you.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our members, staff, volunteer and students. We are following all of the CDC, Local and and State guidelines to provide you with a safe environment. We will be using phases to begin until restrictions either are lifted or change.

Phase 1 of our opening includes:

You are required to wear a mask the whole time you are in the Fitness Center, weight room and during classes. The mask must be over your nose and mouth at all times.

Once you enter the Fitness Center there will be X's on the ground where you will stand. The X's are 6 ft or more apart.

We also will have a manual sign-in sheet where you will answer Y or N to the Covid questions located behind the Fitness Center desk on the white board. We also will be taking your temperature with a Infrared thermometer that will not touch you. We will disinfect your pen once you have used it to sign the proper paperwork.

You will also be asked if your emergency contact information is up to date so that we have that on file.

If you are entering the Gym for a class you will go down to the doors near the Mezzanine. If you must use the Bathroom you can use the double doors closest to the Fitness Center entrance and walk down the hallway from there. The exit once in the Gym to the parking lot is through the double doors on the far side of the Gym.

If you are entering the Weight room there is one entrance which is the original entrance. The exits are located through the double doors farther down or through the Spin room.

The exit to the parking lot if you are using the weight room will be through the double doors in the Bathroom hallway.

There also is a capacity of 25% within the weight room and a 10 person max per class. With the 25% capacity that is roughly 6-8 people. In order to know if we are at capacity we ask that you call into the Fitness Center at 517-592-3393 and we will evaluate the current situation and let you know.

We ask that you disinfectant any equipment that you have used. You will notice that we don't have towels to wipe and that is because all you have to do it spray and leave on. When spraying please do not spray any of the electronic parts of the machine. We will use a disinfecting wipe to clean that part. The disinfectant takes 15 minutes to complete the disinfecting phase, so please allow time 15 minutes in between use of the machine/equipment.

While in the Fitness center you will notice that we have installed a new drinking fountain. It will fill up water bottles and that is it. We also have added a few more hand sanitizing stations that we ask that you use upon entering and exiting the weight room.

We understand that there are a lot of changes for everyone and we will be patience with you and show you the new change, so please do not be anxious at all. We are in this together and will work through it together. Thank you for your understanding during this time.
