As we have done with each JCC program that has restarted over the past few months, we will be following New York State and Schenectady County Department of Health guidelines in our fitness center and will do all we can to ensure our members stay safe. With that being said, there are new procedures at the fitness center and here is what to expect when you return:
  • The fitness center is open daily but is closed for cleaning from 1:30 - 2:00 pm.
  • Please make sure to clean all equipment after usage.
  • The locker rooms including the showers are open.
  • The steam room, sauna and fitness center babysitting area remain closed at this time.
  • As a reminder, please stay home and refrain from visiting the JCC if you or anyone in your home is not feeling well. Thank you to all our members in advance for your cooperation as we work together to do all we can to provide you and your family with a safe and fun JCC experience.


At the SJCC, fitness and wellness are as important to us as they are to our members. Our facilities are some of the best in the area, beginning with our world-class outdoor pool & tennis club and continuing indoors to the state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool and full-size gymnasium.

SJCC members can find numerous opportunities to participate in physical activities like basketball, group classes such as Zumba, Tabata and Hydro Fit, and different sports, all at one of the finest facilities in the Capital District.

Our Sports & Wellness staff is dedicated to helping each member reach their specific fitness goals.

We have more in the works to make our terrific facilities even better.
