Winning dishes will also be printed in the Courts Plus E-News.
Courts Plus is committed to helping you find success in your fitness goals. The recently added benefit of 2 free one-hour personal training sessions for every Courts Plus member is an extension of this commitment. Personal Training Sessions give members a chance to orient themselves to the facility and its equipment with a fitness professional. This is also a time to identify goals, which the personal trainer can then help facilitate by teaching proper movements and techniques. Participants will walk away feeling more confident in the gym and more comfortable with their goals.
West Avenue will be closed from St. Charles Road to Elm Park Avenue during this time. Access to Courts Plus will be restricted to West Avenue north of Elm Park Avenue.
