Chinook Group Exercise Room

About the room:

The group exercise room is available for group classes such as yoga, Pilates, tai chi, etc. It can accommodate up to 18 people. Due to its low ceiling height, it is not appropriate for step aerobics or other “high bounce” activities. Please exercise caution when using this room and any gym equipment.

Who to contact with questions:

If you have any questions about reserving the group exercise room, please email ActivityCenter@kingcounty.gov or call 206-263-9626.

Who can use it:

The group exercise room is open to all employees. Note the below guidelines:

  • First priority will be given to free classes that are open to all employees, then to instructor-paid classes that are open to all employees, private classes, and individual users.
