Fitness Center FAQs

I tried to access the building but the doors were locked, why?
The Deaconess Corporate Center hosts multiple departments and is not a patient facility. Therefore, the building is locked at all times. Once you have been through your fitness center orientation, your gym assistant key card will allow access to the facility. It is important to contact the wellness department to schedule a time to complete your orientation and new member paperwork. 
What are the hours of the Deaconess Corporate Center fitness Center?
5am – midnight, Monday through Sunday
Can spouses receive a free gym membership, etc.?
Yes, all beneficiaries who are participating in the wellness incentive will receive a free gym membership.

The undersigned herby agrees to waive and hold harmless Deaconess Hospital, Inc., its officers, directors, employees, agents, and independent contractors, ("Deaconess Affiliates") from any and all liability, including but not limited to bodily injury, death, and con- sequential losses or damages sustained on or about the Deaconess Fitness Center premises or sustained in participation of its activities, regardless as to whether such injury or loss was due to my own participation or actions of any Deaconess Affiliate, or any third party. I understand as my participation is voluntary and undertaken on my personal time, and that any injury would not be covered by the Hospital's Worker's Compensation or general liability insurance, but rather would be my responsibility under the provisions of my personal medical insurance program.

I have read and understand this form and the program it describes, and I voluntarily request to participate in the Deaconess Hospital, Inc. Fitness Center Program.

Modified Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)

Regular exercise is associated with many health benefits, yet any change of activity may increase the risk of injury. Completion of this questionnaire is the first step when planning to increase the amount of physical activity in your life. Please read each question carefully and answer every question honestly:

Has a physician ever said you have a heart condition?:

When you do physical activity, do you feel pain or discomfort in your chest?:

Have you ever participated in a cardiac rehab program?:

When you were not doing physical activity, have you had chest pain or discomfort in the past month?:

Do you ever lose consciousness or balance because of dizziness?:

Do you have a joint or bone problem that may be made worse by a change in your physical activity?:

Is a physician currently prescribing medications for your blood pressure or heart conditions?:

Have you ever been treated for diabetes?:

Are you 69 years of age or older and not used to being very active?:

Do you know of any reason you should not exercise or increase your physical activity?:


If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are electing to utilize the Deaconess Fitness Center without clearance from your doctor.

If your health changes so that you answer yes to any of the above questions, you need to promptly inform the Fitness Center and talk to your doctor to continue your exercise program.
