Fitness Center


The Red Brick Fitness Center in Building 33, D Bay has closed permanently due the building’s impending demolition.  While a new fitness center is being constructed, MWR will offer fitness center operations at the Community Center, Building T-27 adjacent to the Antler Inn Lodging, beginning on November 4, 2020.  The hours of operation will be Monday-Friday 5AM-8PM and Saturday 8AM-4PM.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, usage of the facility will be by reservation only and total patronage cannot exceed 10 persons at any given time.  Reservations will be prioritized into two categories: active duty military personnel can make a reservation up to two business days in advance; all other personnel can make a reservation up to one business day in advance.  Reservation time slots are fifty minutes in length and start at the beginning of each hour, e.g. 6AM-6:50AM.  Only one reservation can be made per person at a time and no more than three reservations per person per week will be authorized.  To make a reservation please call 804-279-3371 or 804-279-4198 during operating hours.

Operational adjustments to cleaning and social distancing have been implemented to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.  Patrons will have their temperature measured when arriving and anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be allowed entry.  First time users will be required to receive a 3-minute training and will need to sign a Fitness Center COVID-19 Policy Notice prior to admittance.  Face masks will be required and must be worn when not actively engaged in a fitness activity.  Patrons will need to arrive in fitness attire as changing in and out of clothing on site is not permitted.  Daily use lockers will be available but must be cleared out prior to departure.  Patrons must bring their own towels to use while working out.  Showers and water fountains will be unavailable, so patrons will also need to bring their own water.

Point of contact is Jermaine Edwards, 804-366-1172,
