Studies have shown retirees who have a planned exercise program require less healthcare, are less prone to injuries, and experience less stress. The City of Newport News is pleased to offer retirees a choice of three fitness center membership options.
Fitness center membership open enrollment occurs every November. Retirees may make an election during open enrollment to join one of the facilities. Once an election is made, it may not be changed and/or terminated until open enrollment of the following year. Membership through the City's program is open to retirees and spouses for OneLife Fitness and Riverside. You may enroll spouses and children for the YMCA.
Retirees that are currently enrolled and wish to keep their membership do not have to do anything. Those retirees who do not have membership or would like to change membership programs should visit the facility to enroll or cancel.
