Facility Update: August Maintenance Closing
We are very excited to announce we have the go-ahead to completely replace the flooring in the entire cardio, selectorized weight, and free weight area of Yates this August. This 10,000 square foot space is heavily used and well-worn as a result. Because of the equipment needed and the disruption the project will cause, we will have to stay closed a bit longer than traditionally.
Yates will be closed this August from Monday, August 8th through Sunday, August 21st. During this time, as noted earlier, we will also be emptying and white-coating the McCarthy Pool as well as upgrading the entire filter system. The pool will stay closed until the 29th to complete that work.
While the pool is closed, we have arranged for Yates members to swim at the St. Alban’s pool (Wisconsin & Massachusetts Ave, NW). Pool hours are Monday – Friday 6AM – 9AM, 4PM – 8PM, and weekends 8AM – Noon. The entrance to the Cathedral parking garage is on Wisconsin Ave. Members must bring their Yates ID card or GU GOcard.
During the August 8th – 21st closure, Yates is partnering with the Healey Family Student Center to offer a select number of Group Fitness classes in Dance Studio B of the HFSC. Check the Yates Group Fitness web page for exact classes, days and times.
In addition to these facility upgrades, we will also be replacing all the padding on the basketball baskets, cleaning and repairing our current equipment, and bringing in 21 new spinning bikes, and new Step Mills.
The facility will be refreshed and re-equipped for the new school year. We hope you enjoy the changes, and we thank you for your patience while we get the work completed.
