Unplanned Cancellations

Group Fitness class substitutes or cancellations and any Fitness Center closures will be announced on our Facebook page and Twitter page. 

General Closing Guidelines

The Fitness Center doors will be closed and locked at closing time. We will allow a ten minute grace period for members to change clothes and exit the building. Everyone needs to be out of the building within ten minutes after the designated closing time.

Inclement Weather

When the City of Athens announces a Level 1-3 advisory, we will adhere to the following protocols:

  1. Level One: WellWorks will remain open.
  2. Level Two: WellWorks will remain open provided necessary staff can safely travel to Grover Center.
  3. Level Three: WellWorks will close due to inclement weather when there is a Level Three Travel Advisory for Athens County.

Please know that WellWorks will close to be in compliance with any Ohio University campus closings due to inclement weather or any emergency/safety precautions taken by the University.

We will keep our Facebook page as up-to-date as possible in these circumstances.
