Safety Notice

Signs are displayed on workout machines that are currently not available in order to ensure social distancing at the Grant County Family YMCA. Even with COVID changing operations, local gyms say they are seeing an increase in memberships early this year.

Despite the rise of COVID-19 cases across the country, local gyms are seeing an increase in memberships as patrons look to fulfill their New Year’s resolutions of becoming more active.

On Tuesday, The Indiana Department of Health reported that an additional 3,477 people have tested positive for COVID-19. Though positive cases persist, Payton Scott, the director of wellness at The Wellness Center in Marion, said he feels confident about patrons’ trust in his facility’s preventive measures.
