Club Updates

Life is different now. But at Harbor, we remain anchored in our mission to help you Train for Life. We have spent the last several months developing new programming and options for you to find time to take care of your health and wellness- whether it is in the Club in person, or at home. Here are a few highlights:

  • Many group exercise classes have moved inside. Check the schedule daily for location updates. For extra space and to remain socially distanced certain classes are streamed into separate studios.  Register here.
  • Harbor Wellness Studio is open for yoga, Pilates, TRX and barre classes. Registration is required and space is limited. Studio doors open 10 minutes prior to class and doors lock when class begins. The cardio area is not open at this time.Register Here  Register Here.
  • Harbor at Home Virtual Programming: Virtual classes are on the schedule every day for you to join us from home. If the class time doesn’t work, don’t worry! We have a Library of previously recorded content you can watch on demand. Register Here.
  • Youth Enrichment: Need help with child care in the fall? Our new Youth Enrichment program will keep your young ones thriving in a SAFE environment- more info here.
  • Harbor Recess: We know it’s been hard for our parents to find their time for fitness with Kids Club closed. Our Harbor Recess class is designed for ages 3 and up (must be potty trained) to be dropped off for some fun with our Harbor Youth staff and we have corresponding Adult Express classes at the same time. Register here.
  • Pools are all OPEN: All four of our pools are open and taking reservations. Aquatic fitness and Masters Swim programs are all going on now.  Reserve Pool Time.
  • Personal Training and Small Group Training- This is an ideal time to work with a Trainer- either alone or in a small group, and in person or virtually. Our Trainers all have dedicated space in the Club to limit exposure to others. Small group reformer classes are also going on at Wellness.

As always, thank you for training for life with Harbor! We truly appreciate all of your patience and support as we navigate this new normal.

More Youth Options

When we look back at January of this year, it’s incredible where the year has taken us. From the addition of Virtual classes and programs and our new platform Movement on Demand 608, to sign ups for all of the classes and pool times, we have identified that the needs of our members are not being met with our current software, MindBody… so what is one more change to throw in to the mix?
We will be launching a new software system called Club Automation on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13th. We are confident that this change will bring about a better member experience for you and we appreciate your patience with us as we transition to the new system. This is the first in a series of emails you will get about the transition to Club Automation.
Here is what you need to know if you are planning to register for anything on Friday, November 13th, Saturday, November 14th and beyond.
TRANSITION TIMELINE:
  • 11:00 pm on Thursday November 12th: MINDBODY will be turned off for reservations and registrations for Friday, November 13th. If you have any changes you need to make to reservations for Friday, November 13th please call Harbor at 608.831.6500 after we open at 5am. MINDBODY will be shut down so you will be unable to adjust on your own.
  • 7:00 am on Friday, November 13th: Registration for all SATURDAY classes will open. You will need to create a new profile on Club Automation to register for classes or give the desk a call and we can get you registered (you still will need to create your own profile to sign up for classes in future.)
