***The Tactical Fitness Center is now open access for all customers.  Sign-ups are no longer required (just walk in during normal hours of operation), since we are returning to pre-COVID building capacity! 

 

Additionally, we are re-opening the basketball courts and racquetball courts for general usage.  Please continue to adhere to the CDC's social distancing guidelines, and if unvaccinated, wear masks while not actively engaged in fitness activities.  For clarity, Department of the Air Force guidance states that masks are not required "when actively participating in physical fitness activities either indoors or outdoors and either proper physical distancing is maintained or additional measures are implemented to mitigate the threat of transmission." 

 

The indoor locker rooms will remain closed due to ongoing renovations.  For your convenience, restrooms and showers are provided in trailers at the front of the facility.  Due to the heightened potential for COVID transmission from aerosols:  Showers will be open to vaccinated personnel only, and saunas will remain closed. 

 

Further, due to pending repair work at our entry control points, 24/7 access is not currently available at this facility.  Please check the East Fitness Center for 24/7 options for vaccinated personnel.  Please visit us during our hours of operation: Mon-Fri 5:00am-7:00pm, Sat 7:00am-3:00pm. 

***The East Fitness Center is now open for 24/7 access to vaccinated military personnel only, and for unit PT sessions (between 6:00am-2:00pm only) regardless of vaccination status (no sign-up required). To obtain 24/7 access, register your CAC with our fitness staff at the East Fitness Center Mon-Fri from 6:00am-2:00pm. Once registered, no sign-ups are required for 24/7 access. The locker rooms are open to all, but showers are open to vaccinated personnel only.
