We're pleased to announce that beginning July 16, until further notice, a free-weight and strength machine area at Portage will be available outdoors under a canopied and within a fenced-in area. 

Says Association Health and Wellness Director Rebecca Lillie, "While we're not able to bring out our full set of weights and strength pieces, we're making some of the more core pieces available to give us the opportunity for a basic workout."


  • Monday through Friday, 6:30a - 10:15am and 4pm - 6:45pm. 
  • Members must sign up and reserve their 45-minute slot through MOTION VIBE, our new reservation system. (Details below.)
  • There will be eight (8) available openings per time slot. 
  • The tent area is located behind the Kids Zone area. Access will be from outside. An attendant will be present at all times, who will conduct health checks which include a temperature check and a health questionnaire. 
  • Suggested parking is in the far end of the main parking lot (south/southeast corner) -- to the right of the main entrance doors when facing them. 
  • Must be 18+ years old.
