    I really enjoyed this place when it first opened. I went for two years almost everyday. Glenn was the best thing about this place.He would help you and cared about the members. The prices were raised 30% one year, Glenn was gone. the equipment was not maintained. the hours were shortened. I had to compete with the football team for machines. It just went downhill and for a place that started out so great and worked for me so well…it is a sad but predictable end to it.
    It was perfect for a while and then not managed well.(((

    I’m certain all of those private “community” members that donated money in order for the Wellness Center to be built are appreciative of the fact that the community members can’t use the facility.

    The first step to cutting costs was to limit the amount of time the community members could use the facility. Now, you wonder why MSM is operating in the red. Perhaps MSM isn’t capable of managing such a facility.

    Taxpayers and voters DO remember things like this. You want a new athletic compound? I don’t see it happening any time soon.

    It amazes me that the school pushed for this facility and took donations to build this gym inside the school and now they want to close the doors to the public? And…doesn’t our tax dollars help fund part of the facility anyways???
    Considering the Wellness Center’s hours were/are from 5AM-8AM and 5PM-8PM, the general public doe not have to time to go between these hours especially if you have children in school. Also, they charge $45 a month and only open six hours a day during the week and 4 hours saturday and sunday. It’s no wonder Mohican can’t make money to keep the gym open.
    The gym doesn’t even need to be staffed the full day with a key card access to members.

    well you need to find a much better compnay than the current one. And closing the doors during the day to adults is also wrong…. If people are going to support the center, they need t be able to use it when they can and not when a bunch of students are also in there like after school. Maybe some problems but the only thing is the current Mohican or whatever is a joke…
