You can register online for a Fitness Center membership via the MyRec system. (You will need to create a MyRec account, if you have not done so already. Once we verify residency and approve the account, you can register for any of our current offerings.)
Memberships also can be purchased in the Community Ed & Rec office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. (Park in the visitor lot in front of the school and enter Door 18.) Day passes can be purchased from the Fitness Center attendant.
Students in grades 5-12 living in the district or attending our schools can use the Fitness Center for free. Students must be registered for a free student membership via MyRec by a parent/guardian. Once students have a membership, they will need to download their member barcode onto their phone, or print it out and laminate it, so that they can scan the code each time they come.
Student hour is from 3 to 4 p.m. weekdays during the school year; however, students are welcome anytime during public hours (though the facility may close early if there are no community members present).
Students in grades 9-12 can use the facility independently during staffed hours if they have a free membership.
NOTE: Middle-school students wishing to work out after school may ride any of the school buses from Riverview to PHS.
Heather Bassett has joined the Community Fitness Center staff as a NASM-Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Nutrition Coach.
Interested Fitness Center members can begin with fitness and/or nutrition assessment, which take about 45 minutes each and include regular check-ins along with a brief follow-up session about a month later. Members new to fitness may benefit from doing the fitness assessments to get comfortable in a workout routine and work toward personal goals. Nurtrition coaching will help those interested gain general nutrition knowledge, set goals, and work toward changing behaviors to help reach those goals.
Personal training features individual or small group (up to 4 members) options. This is a good opportunity for any fitness level. It is a great next step for those looking for more after their assessments. It can also be for members who are looking to change up their routine to continue to reach personal goals, or for those needing accountability.
Assessments, training, and coaching are available by appointment only; contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community members can walk the hallways and indoor track at Plymouth High School for free during designated times.
The following options are available on regular school days:
• Track: 5:30-7 a.m. through March 22
• Track: 4-7 p.m. (4-6 p.m. Fridays) through March 22
• Halls: 3-8 p.m. (3-6 p.m. Fridays) through April 26
Track/Hall Walking is not available from Dec. 25 through Jan. 1.
Participants should park in the visitor lot in front of the addition or in the student lot south of the building and enter Door 18 (Community Ed & Rec/District entrance). No pre-registration is necessary and walking is free, but be sure to sign the roster located outside the Fitness Center each visit to help us gauge interest in this activity.
