Wellness Center Monthly Membership Fee

Starting October 1st, the NCRC Wellness Center will begin charging a $10 monthly membership fee.

To allow current members sufficient time to renew their membership, we will not turn off badge access to the NCRC Wellness Center until November 1st. This will not impact your access to MHealthy classes.

This monthly fee will enable NCRC and MHealthy to continue this amenity, as well as upgrade our facility services to include towels for the showers and a water cooler in the equipment room.

To allow new members a trial period, the first month of your NCRC Wellness Center membership will be free!

The first 500 people to sign-up for a Wellness Center membership will receive a NCRC Wellness Center BPA free water bottle.

Please note, the payment system to sign-up will launch on October 1st.
