CoxHealth Fitness Centers is excited to announce that we are reopening on Wednesday, June 17, 2020. 

Phase one of our reopening includes, The Meyer Center, North, Republic and Branson. Willard will remain closed due to the inability to physically distance. Member volumes are specified by state and city formulas. We will operate below the maximum allowed to ensure physical distancing and will have staff tracking counts coming and going in each facility.

Facility hours at each location have been limited in efforts to provide symptom checks, manage volumes dictated by city and county and allow for additional cleaning. Walking into our fitness centers you can expect it to feel a bit different. Certain areas will be inaccessible, equipment moved and spread out, classes and services postponed. We will not be accepting new members right away or allowing guests in order to serve current members.

Members 12-years and older will be welcome into our facilities.

Please take a moment and read through our reopening phase and know that CoxHealth Fitness Centers stands by our vision To be the best for those who need us. Thank you for being patient and understanding as we resume our operations.
