We hope your 2022 has started off well and you were able to enjoy the holidays!
The new year is bringing exciting changes to Endurance Fitness. As we shared in the member email sent back in November 2021, we will be moving locations soon. Endurance Fitness will be partnering with the city of Lino Lakes to open the new Rookery Activity Center!
The new location is at 7690 Village Drive Lino Lakes 55014 (the former YMCA building). Endurance Fitness will remain Endurance Fitness, just located within the Rookery Activity Center. The move is 4.4 miles from our current location, north on Lake Drive.
Our equipment, classes, instructors and trainers will be moving with us! There are some things you will need to know as we go forward with this transition.
Our studio will be moving to the new facility Saturday Jan. 22-23rd. We will NOT BE HAVING GROUP FITNESS CLASSES that weekend. Group Fitness classes will resume in the new space on Monday January 24th.
The rest of our equipment (cardio, weights, machines, etc.) will be moved to the new facility over the week of January 24th. The plan is to move all plates, dumbbells and benches over to the new building with the studio equipment on Sunday the 23rd. We have 3 racks currently on site at the new facility and our hope is with moving the smaller apparatuses and weights that you can have a decent workout at the new site starting on the Monday the 24th. The cardio equipment will be moved on that Monday, with the rest of the equipment being moved Tuesday-Friday. We are hoping to be completely done by Wednesday, but cannot guarantee that. We will do our very best to have the equipment moved and ready for you to use as quickly as possible. The current location will be closed for use starting Monday January 24th. We realize that this may cause some disruptions to your workout routine. Please allow for some flexibility as we make this transition and we will work hard to minimize downtime.
January 24, 2022: Group Fitness classes will take place in the new studio. Please visit our schedule page for the class schedule Group Fitness Schedule
The current location will be closed to members. Limited equipment will be available for members to use on the fitness floor at the new facility. The equipment will be completed by the end of the week.
February 1,2022; Our “soft” reopening of Endurance Fitness. This is the target date to be fully functional at the Rookery Activity Center. The new group fitness schedule will also begin on this day. Please check our website and follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information. Thank you for your patience during this transition!
With the reopening of Endurance Fitness, you will have access to group fitness classes and the fitness floor, along with personal training (now is a great time to get some sessions scheduled!). There will also be one locker room available with showers. There are restrooms located on the first floor.
The grand opening of the Rookery Activity Center. With the grand opening, you will have access to the entire center. This will include the pool, sauna, gym and childcare. Stay tuned for information on the details to come!
As current members of Endurance Fitness, you will be grandfathered to the resident rated being offered to Lino Lakes and Circle Pines. Endurance Fitness will be running memberships until the spring, when the city of Lino Lakes will take over the memberships for the entire center. As of today, we do not have their price structure available, but we will provide that as soon as possible. To give you a little bit of understanding of the pricing, if you look at our Platinum membership pricing, it should be very close to what the resident rates will be for the Rookery.
Members who have insurance reimbursement will still have this available.
You will continue to use your key fob to check in at the desk at the new facility.
Endurance Fitness will no longer be a 24-hour access gym. We are working to provide ample time for you to use the facility. Our schedule is fluid and we will make adjustments as needed. Staff will be available on-site during operating hours.
Hours as follows beginning Jan. 24, 2022 (subject to change):
Monday-Friday 5:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Saturday/ Sunday 6:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
When Endurance Fitness opens at the Rookery, there will be some construction still going on. The fitness equipment and main studio are located on the second floor. There is an elevator available if needed. There is a second studio on the first floor, along with locker rooms and restrooms.
The gym, pool and sauna are currently being refurbished. The men’s and women’s locker rooms are also getting a facelift and will be available at a later date. The family locker room will be immediately available and has showers. This locker room will be refurbished at a later date. Childcare will open with the grand opening in the spring.
Outside of the building there are fantastic trails through the Chain of Lakes trail system. We hope you get a chance to check them out!
We hope you are as excited about this transition as we are! We will continue to bring you the world’s leading group fitness class and the talented trainers you are used to.
Please reach out if you have ay questions. Again, we thank you for your patience as we make this transition and we look forward to the future of Endurance Fitness!
Yours in health and fitness,
Ron and Tina Carlson, Owners
