FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which types of memberships do you offer? 

There are two membership options currently available at OAC. The first option is a Month-to-Month Membership. With this membership, there is no long-term commitment. It can be cancelled during membership hours by completing and submitting a cancellation form providing 30-days advance written notice. Also, it can be frozen for a month or longer for a small fee.

 

The second option is a Prestige Membership, which is an annual prepaid membership. The advantage of this option is the dues are discounted. Upon expiration, this membership may be renewed at the then current prepaid rate or converted to a Month-to-Month Membership with no initiation fee.

 

All memberships provide complete 24 hour access to all regular services and programs. Please contact a membership representative for current pricing. Membership representatives are available every day, including weekends, between 9:00 am and 7:00 pm. For more information about membership, please contact us by calling 206.789.5010 or by filling out the fields below. One of our Membership Specialists will contact you regarding our current promotions and online membership specials and answer any questions you might have.

 

What is your guest policy? 

As an adult member of OAC, one of the benefits includes bringing guests to the Club. In fact, members may bring as many guests as they want. The first time an in town guest comes to the Club, the visit is free. That same person may then be a guest again; however, a guest fee of a $15 per visit will be required.Out-of-town guests (i.e., guests who reside 60 miles away from Seattle) receive a discount. They are only charged $10 per visit. All guests must be accompanied by a member at check-in. Also, valid photo ID is required.

 

Is there an extra charge for Aerobic/Yoga classes? 

At OAC, we believe that variety is the key to success with any fitness program. It is because of this that we offer a variety over 100 free classes with each of our memberships. No prior sign-up is necessary, unless otherwise indicated. Members simply need show up at the scheduled class time to participate.

 

We also offer around 50 fee-based classes including Crossfit, Barre, TRX, and Bellydancing. Fee based classes may be reserved on-line through the mindbodyonline website.

 

What is required in order to participate in a cycling class? 

There is no fee for cycling classes for members of Olympic Athletic Club; however, sign up is required 30 minutes prior to class at the front desk.

 

What are the details about your swimming pools? 

OAC operates two separate swimming pools: A family leisure pool located on the 1st floor and an adult's only lap pool located on the 2nd floor. Our family leisure pool is 20 yards long and four lanes wide. It's primarily used for open swim, group exercise classes, swim lessons, and family activities. The temperature of the family pool is maintained between 83-85 degrees. The adjoining hot tub is maintained between 102-104 degrees. Our adult lap pool is 25 yards long and four lanes wide. It's designated for adult lap swim ONLY. The temperature of the adult lap pool is maintained between 78-80 degrees. The adjoining hot tub is maintained between 102-104 degrees.

 

Do you offer childcare? 

OAC is proud to offer an amazing childcare. Childcare reservations may be made 24 hours in advance, beginning at 8 AM.

 

What equipment can children use, and at what age? 

Children under the age of 13 may participate in swimming, racquetball, and basketball (with adult supervision)

Children age 13 and up can access equipment and group exercise classes after they complete a free teen orientation class with one of our trainers. After completing the class, children are issued a membership card and become eligible to use the Club on their own between 6am and 10pm, with the exception of the pools or hot tubs. Use of the pools or hot tubs requires parental supervision at all times for children under the age of 18. Also, no child under 18 may bring guests under age 18.

 

What are the Personal Trainers backgrounds and what do they charge? 

All OAC Personal Trainers are certified professionals who work to educate and motivate clients about achieving and sustaining their health and fitness goals. Personal training rates work on a sliding scale based on the number of sessions you purchase (each session lasts one hour). Please see a trainer or one of our Front Desk staff for current rates.

 

How do I terminate my account? 

A month-to-month membership can be cancelled or placed on hold. If you place your membership on hold, you are charged a small fee per month. However, this allows you to reactive your membership without paying any type of enrollment fee. To cancel your membership, you just need to request, fill-out, and submit a cancellation form during membership hours before the 25th of the month or mail a certified letter 30 days in advance of the month you wish to cancel. Membership Representatives available every day, between 9am and 7pm.
