Group Fitness Classes

We offer a variety of group fitness classes for our members to participate in. Our group classes range from aerobics to strength training to flexibility based classes. A monthly calendar with the class schedule is posted on the website as well as throughout the building. For more information on our group classes please contact a member of the MFC fitness staff.

Personal Training

Personal training allows you to work one-on-one with one of our fitness staff members. Your trainer will work with you to design and implement an exercise regimen to help you achieve your fitness goals. Along the way your trainer will provide guidance and motivation to keep you moving in the right direction. Benefits of personal training include:


  • Individual 1-on-1 instruction
  • Personalized workouts
  • Goal setting and progress tracking

Personal training sessions must be scheduled in advance and are subject to trainer availability on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Group Strength Training

If you and a workout partner would like to experience the benefits of a personal trainer together you can set up a group strength training session. Benefits of group strength training are the same as personal training only in a group setting. However groups must remain small and are restricted to 2-4 people


Group strength training sessions must be scheduled in advance and are subject to trainer availability on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Fitness Assessments

A fitness assessment is a test to evaluate your body in four basic areas; cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition. The results of a fitness assessment can give baseline information that can help in developing fitness goals. You can have all components tested or just certain ones. Components of the assessment include:

  • Resting heart rate and blood pressure
  • Body circumferences
  • Body composition with skin caliper and body fat analyzer
  • 3 minute step test (cardiovascular endurance)
  • Bench press and sit-up test (muscular endurance)
  • Sit and reach test (flexibility)


Assessments must be scheduled in advance and are subject to trainer availability. All information and results from an assessment are kept confidential.
