a safe space to stay active

As we think about the future of our family of clubs, we recognize that we are all part of a larger community of organizations, cities, and individuals taking immediate, necessary steps to care for our well-being together.

While distancing may be a part of our new normal, staying active and connected remain more important than ever. It is vital to have a safe place to exercise for your mental and physical health as well as boost our immune systems. 

To ensure that our members and employees can continue to exercise and practice a healthy lifestyle together, we are enhancing our cleaning and sanitation protocols to protect the well-being of our AFF community.
