Do I have to be a member to use the facility?

To use the Freedom Center, whether it is for your daily workout or your child participating in a program, you do not have to be a member.   We offer daily memberships for individuals who want to use the gym without purchasing a month, 6-month, or annual membership.  If you would like to register your child for a program, call the program registration line at 703-993-8513.  The Freedom Center prides itself on being a destination for fun and fitness for everyone in the community!

What does my daily membership include?

With a daily membership you enjoy the same benefits as individuals with a membership.  You have access to our group fitness classes, weight training room, cardio room, indoor track, competition pool, leisure pool, basketball courts, and other programs/activities scheduled that day.  While members may depart and reenter the Center at any time, daily members will not be readmitted after they leave the facility unless they pay an additional daily fee.  Fees for one daily admission can be credited towards one month, six month, and annual membership dues for new members only with a receipt for proof of purchase within the past week (maximum $9.00). For information on rates, please contact a member service representative at 703-993-8444.
