***The Fitness Center recently implemented an electronic check-in system. Each ID cardholder will need to be registered in the system on their first visit to the facility. Once registered, the member will simply scan their ID as they enter on subsequent visits. The electronic check-in system registration takes a maximum of two minutes per member and registration is only necessary one time. This system will ensure accurate facility usage information that will be used to determine peak usage times and hours of operation, as well as justify funding for equipment and faciltty upgrades. The electronic system will also be used to determine trends for Fitness Center programming that will meet the needs of clientele based on usage patterns. The Fitness Center continuously strives to improve our customer service and the electronic check-in system is one more step in that journey.***
