Cardio Room FAQS


Hours and Capacity

During Step 1, our hours and capacity will be limited.

Week of August 24 and until further notice:

  • Monday-Thursday: 6am-9pm
  • Friday: 6am-5:30pm
  • Saturday and Sunday: 8am-2pm

The cardio room will allow for up to 15 members per hour. Alternate cardio machines will be disabled to allow for social distancing and sanitizing.

Members are allotted a one (1) hour timeslot which includes time to clean/sanitize your machine before and after use.

Upon arrival to the Health + Wellness Center Welcome Fitness Desk, you will be required to check in with an SJJCC team member before going upstairs.

Mandatory Reservations

In order to utilize the cardio room, members must reserve their day and time 48 hours in advance via our new online reservation system.

2 hours advance notice is required for cancellations. Advance registration privileges will be revoked at SJJCC’s discretion.

As a courtesy to your fellow members, please adhere to the designated one-hour time limit.

What Will I Be Required to Bring?
  • Masks are required while walking around the Health + Wellness Center and while working out. If you are fully vaccinated, you can work out without a mask in our Health + Wellness Center if you show either the cards you received at vaccination sites or your pass on the New York State Excelsior app program, epass.ny.gov/home.
  • A towel, as our towel service has been temporarily suspended
