Westlake Recreation Center launches membership drive

Westlake residents and employees of Westlake companies can enjoy a free two-week trial of fitness equipment and other Rec Center amenities during the Nov. 10-Dec. 10 membership drive.

The Westlake Recreation Center has designated Nov. 10 through Dec. 10 as its official New Member Drive period. This year’s "Get to the Rec!" membership campaign kicks off with a chance to win one of five free memberships to residents or employees of Westlake companies who sign up at the Rec Center for a new membership by Dec. 10.

The free membership (a $295 value) will count toward the member's second-year renewal costs. To be eligible for the free membership drawing, the winners must either be new to the Rec Center or have not been a member for the past 12 months.

"As the weather turns colder and the snow starts falling, there isn't a better place to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle than the Westlake Recreation Center," said Bob DeMinico, director of the Westlake Recreation Department. "In addition to the wide variety of fitness options, the Rec Center puts on hundreds of special programs to suit all ages throughout the entire year. Choices range from Group Cycling and Pilates to Yoga and Water Walking. These classes fit virtually every fitness level for any age group. So when you are looking to spend quality family time together, look no further than us and ‘Get to the Rec.’”

The membership drive offers a "Try Before You Buy" two-week trial membership at no cost which can be used anytime during the month-long campaign. It allows residents and employees of Westlake companies to use the indoor swimming pool and take advantage of the facility's many fitness rooms, walking/jogging track, basketball courts, weight room, and exercise equipment.

During the "Get to the Rec!" campaign, a prospective member will also be able to try out any of the Rec Center's staff-led group exercise and water aerobic classes free of charge. (Classes conducted by outside third parties are excluded from this offer.) There are dozens of classes to choose from, with a complete listing available at www.cityofwestlake.org/group-fit-classes.

Current members of the Rec Center will benefit as well. As a show of appreciation, a 10 percent discount is offered to members who, during the membership drive period, renew before their membership expiration date. (This discount cannot be combined with the installment plan.) Additionally, current members will be able to bring up to two guests free of charge per visit, and will receive free access to any group exercise or water aerobics class during the drive.

Rec Center memberships start at $295 for an adult individual pass. Membership dues can also be paid via a monthly installment option.

Non-resident employees who work for any Westlake business are also invited to take part in the new member drive. The Rec Center offers special corporate rates, with discounts based on the total number of employees enrolled.
