Time slots for the exercise room will be no more than 1 hour with 30 minutes between each guest to allow for cleaning. Only one person at a time (or one couple) will be booked per reservation.
The walking track will be booked in 30-minute increments per person, but allowing no more than 4 individuals to walk (no running for now) at a time. However, individuals can claim multiple slots should they need longer to complete their routine. The walking track rails and stairway rails will be thoroughly wiped down at the end of the day.
NOTE: Individuals/Couples who frequently come to the FLC to exercise will be allowed to book a standing reservation to avoid having to call in every day. We will only request they call to let Recreation Staff know if they are unable to make a reservation.
Arrival/Departure: When a guest arrives, they will need to call 601.790.2277 to let us know so we can let them into the Family Life Center. Doors will remain locked in order to keep the building’s access limited. Once in the building, they will need to sanitize or wash their hands before using any equipment. Recreation staff will thoroughly clean each piece of equipment in the exercise room once the guest(s) have finished in order to prepare for our next guests.
