MUSC Wellness Center


When will group classes resume??
First time back since the reopening. Very impressed with the precautions in place and the seriousness adhering to them. Staff is doing an incredible job guiding everyone with speed, efficiency, and personal attention.
when are you guys opening back up? Governor says gyms can open Monday?
Do you normally offer swim lessons?
I love the wellness center and look forward to it opening again. Why are we being charged our monthly fee, if the wellness center is closed and unusable due to the Pandemic in the U.S.?
I wish there was a way to do the classes with Zoom or some other internet platform. I miss my classes.
Incredibly disappointed with the path the MUSC Wellness Center has gone down the last several years. Initially cancelling childcare that members paid for on top of their membership, cancelling all swim lessons and summer camps for children - again paid for by members in addition to the monthly fee, and raising the monthly rate without offering any additional services or classes to members. Now not allowing families to watch while their parents play in a basketball league that is again, an additional fee on top of the monthly membership fee. For an institution that prides itself on being a positive influence on the Charleston Community and strives to bring families together, the MUSC Wellness Center is doing everything possible to hinder the progress of MUSC as a Hospital and as a University. Having been a member of the MUSC Wellness Center for nearly 10 years, I have only seen it go down hill year after year. I have cancelled my membership and don’t recommend this facility to anyone. Janice Newton has her own agenda, makes it impossible to collaborate with any other aspect of MUSC.
Pickleball today at 4:30 pm. Looking for 2 players for doubles.
Is it possible to ask you a question on here?
Thought this might be a good way to send in a request. I would like to ask that you please consider adding another therapy table to the upstairs area above cardio. Many people would like to use it and the one there now is completely booked from 9:00 AM until 1:00 daily. Thanks for considering
Happy Holidays everyone! Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm teaching cycling 6 a.m in the morning. It may be early for some of you but you will have a blast once you get there. Also, it starts your day out on the right foot which makes for an awesome day. See you there! Catherine
