Fitness Center FAQs

Is the JCCSF Fitness Center open for in-person workouts?

The JCCSF Fitness Center will open on Monday, March 8 for in-person activities. On Monday, March 15, in-person, low-intensity, group exercise classes and outdoor, rooftop classes will return. Expect to hear from us when we can reopen high-intensity group exercise classes and Fitness Center access to members under 18.

Why am I being charged membership dues?

When we reopened in fall 2020 we resumed billing for all active members. If you’re not quite ready to jump back into in-person fitness, we understand and have other options for you. We’ve expanded our online and outdoor exercise classes and recently introduced an equipment lending program to support you with more workout options from the comfort of your home. You can also access our live, on-demand and outdoor group exercise classes that are included in your membership dues. You can view the schedule online here. Check out all our available membership features here.  If you have additional questions, please reach out to us at

Can I continue taking online classes?

Yes. We’re happy you’ve been able to keep up with your workouts by taking classes virtually. Online group exercise classes will be available to members as we transition back into the Fitness Center. In-person, low-intensity, group exercise classes such as yoga and Pilates mat will resume on Monday, March 15. We’re lucky to have many large spaces – stay tuned for more information. Check out our online class schedule. 

Where can I find more information about joining online fitness classes?

You can visit our Online Classes FAQ page for detailed steps on how to participate in classes.

What can I expect when I return to the JCCSF Fitness Center?

If you visited the JCCSF Fitness Center when it was open in fall 2020, you can expect a very similar experience. We have the same attention to detail when it comes to our cleaning and safety best practices including regular cleaning throughout the day, socially distanced equipment, as well as staff and members all in masks; our top priority is making sure you feel safe and are comfortable while at the JCCSF. You can find our extensive health and safety protocols here.

What if I’m not ready to come back into the gym?

If you’re not quite ready to jump back into in-person fitness, we understand. We still offer over 25+ live group fitness classes per week and you can access our on demand fitness classes as well.  If you’re comfortable working out outside, join one of our outdoor group fitness classes every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Will members be required to wear masks?

Yes, per city guidelines members will be required to wear masks while inside the JCCSF, which includes while working out. Additionally, all staff will always be required to wear a mask while in the building.

Are the pool and locker rooms open?

When the Fitness Center opens, you will have access to lockers on the fitness floor, but the pool and locker rooms will remain closed for the time being. Our lockers rooms are currently under renovation and will open in summer 2021 and the new Gallanter Family Aquatics Center is scheduled to open in fall 2021.

How do I pick up my locker contents?

If you’d like to pick up the contents of your locker please email to arrange a time.
