If not done by this date, your items will be removed from your lockers and will be bagged up by locker number and put into our storage.

We encourage our members to come dressed and ready for their workouts and to use our open storage located by the weight room and fitness studio.
When will group exercise and water aerobics classes return?
Group (land) exercise classes will be available in phase 2 with limited schedules. Class sizes will be limited based on a safe capacity of physical distancing. Details will be coming soon.
Water aerobics will remain inactive until further notice.
Do I have to renew my membership if expired during closure?
No, all memberships have been considered frozen while we have been closed. The time that was lost during closure will be extended onto your membership. Please contact Maddie Koster at [email protected] if you have questions about your membership.
What if I don’t have a mask?
You must have a mask to work out at Willmore. We do not expect you to wear the mask while working out, but you will be required to wear it when you are unable to ensure a 6-foot distance from other members and staff, and when entering and exiting the building. This is to ensure the safety of our members and staff. We are selling masks for $1 at the front desk. Stop by and our student staff will help you out!
Will the tennis courts be set up?
Members are allowed to play tennis on our outdoor courts. Indoor courts will be available if weather does not allow you to play outside.
