Centennial Fitness Center FAQs

What is included in a Centennial Fitness Center Membership?

All Access Membership includes use of the fitness center, indoor track, indoor pool, hot tub, dry sauna, racquetball courts, open gym for basketball and pickleball and badminton, public locker rooms, and unlimited group fitness classes. During the summer, outdoor lap swimming is also free to all members (except Daylight Savings members) during designated times.

Individual Membership includes all of the above with the exception of group fitness classes.

What types of memberships do you offer?

We offer Annual and Short-Term Options. Annual memberships are valid 12 months from the date of purchase, and can be paid in full or through a monthly draft from a banking account or credit card. Annual memberships that are paid monthly automatically renew each year. 

Individual: For any person 13-64 years of age

Senior: Individuals 65 years of age and older

Add-on: After the initial individual membership of a household, the rest of the household is eligible for add-on memberships. Add-on memberships vary in price based on age. Anyone 12 and under gets a reduced rate compared to 13 and over due to the fact that 12 and under can use the pool and gymnasium only. Please note that once a dependent turns 26 years old, they must have their own household and are not eligible for an add-on membership. 

Youth Individual: Children ages 12 and under with access to the indoor pool and gymnasium only. This is only available to households where no one over the age of 12 is an annual member.

Daylight Savings: Provides member with access Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 3:00pm. Daylight Savings members can upgrade to an individual membership at any time. Daylight Savings members must pay the daily visit rate if they wish to use the facility outside of the designated time. 

Short Term Memberships (6-month, 3-month, 1-month, 1-week): These memberships are for 9 years of age and older, must be paid in full, and are consecutive.

Student (3-month and 1-month): Student memberships are available to individuals currently enrolled full-time at a college, university, high school, or elementary school.

Unlimited Group Fitness: With the Unlimited Group Fitness Pass, you’ll never have to worry about how many classes you have left on your Fitness Class Pass. Centennial Fitness Center Membership is not required. This membership is exclusive to classes only.

NOTE: Individuals under 18 years old are required to have a legal guardian sign all membership forms.
