Youth in the Wellness Room

As of June 1, 2019, we have changed the age of youth able to use the Wellness Room to 11 years of age. Please follow the rules listed below:

  • Youth aged 11-14 can use the Wellness Room AFTER having been trained by our Health & Wellness Director OR after training with Dr. Ruiz.
  • Youth that have been properly trained must stop at the front desk to check in where they will be given a red arm band to wear during their workout. (This armband allows staff working in the Wellness Room to see that youth have been properly trained). When the workout is over the armband needs to be returned to the front desk.
  • Youth may only use the Wellness Room during regularly staffed hours; no 24-hour access available to anyone under age 18.
  • Youth ages 14 and up are allowed to use the Wellness Room without being trained, but do so at their own risk.

Those found to not be following the rules may forfiet their Wellness Room privileges as well as their membership.

If you have any questions about youth using the Wellness Room, please contact the Y at 402-223-5266.
