FACILITIES 
Salem Community Center and other area facilities are arguably some of the nicest gym facilities in the city. Please help us keep it clean and looking great! General rule...leave the gyms nicer than when you arrived. Please help us with picking up trash, throwing it away and cleaning up. We are always one bad mess away from having to move locations. We appreciate your help!
