This week’s “In The Loup” features an update from Tom LaCasse, our new GM of the Fitness & Aquatics Center.

Hello, my name is Tom LaCasse and I am proud to be the General Manager of the JCC Fitness & Aquatics Center. We have reopened the center and the feedback from returning and new members has been incredibly positive. The conversation around the center is enthusiastic and watching the excitement of seeing old friends being rejoined has been exhilarating. Our yoga classes are proving to be a highlight for returning members and instructors and everyone is enjoying the freshly painted and cleaned facility as well. As a reminder, here are our hours of operation:

Monday – Thursday: 5:30 am – 9:00 pm
Friday: 5:30 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday & Sunday: 7:00 am – 7:00 pm

While our Indoor Pool remains closed for the near future, the Outdoor Pool is seeing lots of activity throughout the day. It is especially delightful to see the smiles of joy on the faces of our younger members splashing around. Even the cool, rainy weather does not dampen their enjoyment. Here are the hours of the Outdoor Pool is open:

Monday – Thursday: 6:00 am – 8:30 pm
Friday: 6:00 am – 6:30 pm
Saturday & Sunday: 7:30 am – 6:30 pm

New faces are joining our fitness and aquatics team weekly and our focus will continue on creating “over the top”  experiences for members and guests. If you are interested in joining the Fitness & Aquatics Center, please contact Forrest Tarsa, our Membership consultant via email.

I would like to thank the JCC staff and leadership for their warm welcome into the JCC community. Their assistance and cooperation has been invaluable. In addition, I would like to thank Bruce Elebee, Assistant General Manager of Fitness & Aquatics and AJ Rivera, Aquatics Manager. We have all worked very hard and will continue to provide you with a fitness and wellness experience that will exceed your expectations. Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email.if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful weekend and if you haven’t made your way back to the J for a swim or a workout since our re-opening, please do so soon!

In the meantime, get ready for your next workout by watching our hype video.
