We pride ourselves on having a fitness floor that is accessible to everyone.

Walking track

Our walking track is 1/6 of a mile and has stunning panoramic 360-degree views. We alternate the direction each day. The track features a 5% grade change, which allows you to challenge yourself, if you choose. A flat 1/10-mile bypass is available.

Six laps around the full track equals 1 mile. 10 laps around the bypass equals 1 mile.

The track is available for ages 16 and up to use on your own, or for all ages with parent or guardian supervision.
