RCH HealthWorks Fitness
Located in Suite 100 (1st floor) of the Health & Wellness Center, HealthWorks Fitness promotes the belief that a healthier lifestyle through exercise and education really does work! We do this not only by working with you after an illness or surgery but by training you in prevention as well. That’s why HealthWorks was created. It’s our goal to help satisfy the health and fitness needs of this community by providing fitness equipment, training, and specially individualized exercise prescriptions.
HealthWorks Fitness also houses Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. This area includes a consultation room, rehab check-in area where patients can meet with Cardiopulmonary staff to get their vital readings and discuss rehabilitation. Additional fitness equipment and lockers are now available too!

Following are some common questions about Fitness Center membership and policies.
Do I have to sign a contract?
No contracts, but members are expected to pay membership fees on the 1st of the month they are due.
If I sign up in the middle of the month, does my membership apply to the following month?
It depends. The month you sign up is the month your membership is applied if you sign up before the 15th of that month. If you sign up on the 15th or after of the month, your membership will be charged to the next month.
Can I put a hold on my membership?
No holds on membership accounts unless there is a medical reason, or snow birding (3+ months).
If I only use the gym twice a month do I have to pay for that month?
Yes, members have unlimited access to the Fitness Center during operating hours; how frequently or infrequently you choose to come is up to you.
If my account is inactive for multiple months, do I have to make up the missed payments?
No, but if a member’s account remains inactive for three months, he/she must sign up again as a new member and is responsible for “new membership” fees.
When is membership due and how will I be notified?Membership payments are due on the 1st of the month. Key fobs are set to expire on the 7th of the month and are not updated until after payment is received. Card reminders are mailed out every month as a courtesy reminder.

• Standard membership (64 and under): $50 total for 3-month (June, July, August) gym membership.
