Membership FAQs


What is the difference between Standard Membership and Prime?

Standard membership provides access to about 80% of our programs, with fee-based programs and services available à la carte for an additional cost. Prime membership is all inclusive, providing access to all programs and to the equipped fitness room at no additional cost (exceptions are travel, services such as massage, and designated special events or programs). For members who participate in fee-based programs, it is almost always cheaper to be a Prime member! Plus, there are additional benefits for Prime members. You receive 20% off facility rental and a certificate for a free month of membership to give to a friend or a family member.

Is access to the equipped fitness room included in Prime membership?

Yes!  Access to the fitness room is one of the benefits of Prime membership. Standard members are welcome to use the fitness room for an additional fee of $15/month.

Can you pay for both Standard and Prime membership by the month?

You can! Contact Suzanne Orejuelat at 434.220.9732 to set up monthly payments.

My spouse and I have a household membership.  Can one of us go for Standard and one for Prime?

Absolutely! We will work out the cost for you when you join or renew.

What if I buy a year’s membership and then change my mind about what kind I want?

              No problem. We can change your membership at any time and rework your cost.

Are scholarships still available for membership and programs?

              Yes. Contact Suzanne Orejuela at 434.220.9732 for more information.

  I have a Standard membership.  Can I still try out programs for free before committing to them?

        Yes, we encourage everyone to try our programs one time for free (some exceptions apply, such as travel). For more information about programs at The Center, visit our
         programs page.
