An official army family and MWR Site

Starting July 1, 2020, under HPCON BRAVO, Ambrose Fitness Center will be open by appointment only for Military (Active, Reserve & National Guard) and DES personnel. The facility will operate under new hours of Monday – Friday from 6:00AM to 6:00PM. Reservations will be accepted by calling (804)633-8219 24 hours in advance (Monday – Friday; please call on Friday for Monday reservations). Participants should be prepared to answer a series of questions when making their reservation to insure the highest level of health and safety for all parties. Priority will be given to Regular Army and Reserve personnel. Garrison DES Personnel with a physical fitness requirement may utilize the facility, as space permits. The facility will allow 10 patrons at a time to work out in 1 ½ hour blocks, at the following start times: 6:00AM, 8:00AM, 10:00AM, 12:00PM, 2:00PM, 4:00PM. At the end of each block, staff will perform a deep clean for 30 minutes before the next group of patrons are permitted to enter. All patrons must wear a mask to enter the building, and it is recommended that masks be worn during workouts. Social distancing of 6-feet must be maintained. No group exercise will be permitted at this time, to include basketball, volleyball and racquetball. Resale operations within Ambrose Fitness Center will remain closed, as will Wilcox Fitness Center. MWR would like to encourage all patrons to participate in outdoor fitness as much as possible. The track near Beaverdam Pond and nature trails are available for use.
