wellness through prevention and rehabilitation



WellWorks is more than just a fitness center — we’re a health and wellness facility. As a member you receive access to our fitness center, group exercise classes, and personal trainers. Membership is not required to enjoy our massage and nutrition services and special events.

We believe good health should be an attainable goal for everyone. WellWorks is an environment that’s inviting, not intimidating.
