NCRC Wellness Center
The Wellness Center is a resource to help promote greater health and wellness for all UMHS employees and U-M NCRC faculty & staff. This is accomplished by offering fitness and strength training machines, MHealthy Classes and multiple Wellness Programs.
On October 1st, the NCRC Wellness Center began charging a $10 monthly membership fee.
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.
The first 500 people to sign-up will receive an NCRC Wellness Center BPA free water bottle. You may pick up your water bottle at the NCRC Mcard Office.
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 held at NCRC.
New members will receive a trial period, the first month of your NCRC Wellness Center membership will be free!
If you have already created an account for MHealthy classes, you will use the same user name and password to log-in and purchase your NCRC Wellness Center membership.
Please allow 1 business day for your badge to be activated.
As of October 1st, orientations are now completed online as part of your membership process.
MHealthy classes membership and payments are in no way affiliated with the NCRC Wellness Center membership and payments. You do not have to be a NCRC Wellness Center member to access MHealthy classes held at NCRC. The $10.00 monthly fee is for use of the NCRC Wellness Center only and separate from any payments towards MHealthy classes you may sign-up for.
- The membership fee is $10.00 a month.
- The first month of membership will be free for any new member.
- A credit/debit card is the only acceptable method of payment.
- A re-occurring automatic monthly payment of $10.00 will take effect at the start of the second month of membership until membership is canceled.
- Membership may be canceled at any time. Please note that once the membership is charged at the beginning of the month, the member will remain active through the end of the month. There are no refunds or partial refunds given. The member must cancel at least one business day prior to the end of the month to avoid charges for the subsequent month.
- There are two methods of canceling a membership: email the NCRC MCard office at firstname.lastname@example.org requesting your membership to be canceled, or visit the NCRC MCard office in person and request your membership to be canceled. Note, NCRC Wellness Center memberships can only be canceled at the NCRC MCard office, other MCard offices are not able to process your cancellation.
- Members are required to renew their ParQ and Liability forms annually, 365 days from initial sign-up.
