    Fitness centers with childcare/ play areas

    Advertisements
    We are pretty new to the military and just moved to San Diego. I cancelled my gym membership and I thought I would check out the fitness centers at the bases. I was told that some of them have childcare or a place where the kids can hang out while I work out. I was wondering if anyone knows which ones do. If not I will probably just start calling them and asking. Thanks.

    It will probably depend on the base/post you're located at. At Ft. Wainwright, Alaska - there was a small community center with an exercise room like you're describing. I would contact MWR at your location, they will either know or know who you need to call.

    Welcome to MSOS!

    Not sure how old your kids are but mine are 2 and 3 and it doesn't work well. They constantly want me or need attention. One of the gyms on base does offer childcare but they have to be registered on base to use it. I opted for a membership off base.
