How do I join the Fitness Facility?

Feel free to stop by and take a look. We are located at Lakewood High School on Bunts and Franklin door 31. You can walk in to sign up. It takes about five minutes and can be done right before you plan on working out for the first time.  Membership Form

Physical form, Why do I need it?

Every child who plays a group sport must have an updated physical form on file before they can register for a sport.  If you get an error message when you go to register (your membership is expired) it's most likely your child's physical is not up to date in the Recreation database.
