Purrysburg Fitness Center Closed for Renovations

The Purrysburg Fitness Center is closed during renovations to the locker rooms. It is suggested, if possible, to use the other fitness centers in the afternoons when there is greater availability for most of the cardio equipment. There will be no orientations at Purrysburg Fitness Center during the renovation.

The Purrysburg indoor pool hours have been extended daily as listed below until construction is complete. Extended hours for the indoor pool are self-use and for residents only. Please be safe and always swim with a buddy. 

   

Hours for the Indoor Pool Only
 

Monday - Friday 6 a.m. - 10 p.m. Staff available 6 a.m.-8 p.m. except for Thursday staff available 6 a.m.-6 p.m.
Saturday 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. Staff available 7 a.m.-1 p.m.
Sunday 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. Staff available 8 a.m.-6 p.m.


The group water and land exercises classes will continue. The land classes will check-in at the front desk and go directly to the aerobics room as the entire gym will be closed and blocked off. 
 
The water classes will check-in with a staff member at the back pool door closest to the croquet greens. Cash and member charges will be available for class payment at the back pool door. If you plan to pay by credit card, you will need to pay at the front desk, take your receipt and show it to the staff member at the back pool door.
 
Interval Circuit Training (ICT) will not be available during the renovation. After much discussion, it was not possible to move the sessions. Instead, receive a free group exercise card to attend any of the group exercise classes for free at any location. ICT cards will be activated when the center reopens. ICT trainers will be working as trainers on the floor at the other fitness centers during the times they normally would work the ICT program.
 
The Purrysburg Indoor Pool will remain open. Access the pool through the back doors. See chart above for hours. Restrooms will be available at the Logo Building or the Yemassee Crafts Center, so please plan ahead!
