Before you come to Club Bethesda:
Prior to visiting Club Bethesda – whether to use the exercise equipment, take a class or use the pool – Club members must reserve a time slot online by clicking here or by calling 320-214-5627.
Club Bethesda is open for individual workouts and group fitness classes – on land and in our warm-water therapy pool. Per state mandate, reservations are required, and there is a limit on the number people allowed in a class, in the pool, and using fitness equipment.
New state mandate requires Club members to wear a mask at all times during land activities (even while exercising), and members must remain 9 feet apart while at the Club and in the pool. Sanitation bottles and towels will be available for wiping down equipment before and after use. Read Club Bethesda’s new rules, by clicking here.
Club Bethesda is equipped with state-of-the-art exercise machines that are specifically geared towards older adults. The Club also offers a variety of fitness classes for every fitness level.
