If you have suddenly become health conscious, the Post can now assist you toward the goal of good health.
The old gym (located in the lower level of the Post) has been moved and renovated and is ready for use. The old exercise equipment has been replaced with newer, up-to-date gym equipment. One nice feature of the gym, is no matter what level you are at, there is equipment to accommodate your needs.
The best part of the gym is that it is free of charge*! However, Gym membership is only available to individuals who are *current members of the AVP, Ladies Auxiliary and the FAV and only they can use the Gym.
For those who have complained and said "What do I get as a member." Aside from the pride of being a member the gym is just one of the benefits of being a member of the Athenia Veterans Post.
The gym will be available for use every day the Post is open. The gym starting time will be 11:00AM or when the post officially opens for the day. Gym closing will be at 9:00PM sharp!
Gym participants must be familiar with the rules that govern the usage of the gym.
1. To use the Gym, you must sign-in at the bar and sign-out upon leaving. This is done for your protection, otherwise no one will know if you are down there using the equipment.
2. No alcohol of any kind may be consumed or brought into Gym at any time.
3. The gym is for exercise usage ONLY. No card playing or “general hanging out” will be permitted.
4. When using the heavy weights, there must be two people who sign in together. The additional person is there to spot or assist the other. Otherwise, individuals can use the gym.
5. All participants must be members of the Post. Your friends are permitted to see the gym but are not permitted to use any of the equipment*.
* This rule is necessary because of insurance liability issues that may arise should someone hurt themselves while using the equipment.
So the next time you are at the Post, why not stop over and see the AVP Gymnasium.
Jack LaLanne would have been proud of us!
A special thank you goes out to AVP members Kevin Gorman, Malvin Frias and John Kish. If it wasn't for all their efforts and hard work this Gymnasium would not have been possible.
