Expectations | West Hills Athletic Club


We have been working hard to welcome you back safely, and now we need your help! West Hills appreciates members' and guests' adherence to the following safety precautions during their visits. Let's stay safe together!

General information

The best science and data available has shaped the guidelines and safety protocols to reopen Michigan's fitness facilities. The following information details safety measures to protect our members and their families, such as having strict check-in and check-out policies and is limiting capacity to 25% of occupancy. Due to West Hill building size, we don't anticipate occupancy to being an issue. But in the RARE situation that we reach capacity, additional work out areas and equipment available to get started on your workout while waiting to enter the fitness center.

  • Please use a hand sanitizer located at the entry point prior to checking in.
  • Please wear a mask at all times per executive order 2020-175.
