After the rates for her membership more than doubled at the Greenwood Community Center, a local mother now takes brisk walks in her neighborhood with her family and does aerobics with a video in her basement instead of going to the gym.
Heather McIntosh and her family changed their daily workout schedule when their Greenwood Community Center membership expired this month.
The community center eliminated its family rate of $135 per year for a family of four, plus $15 per additional person. A family membership for McIntosh, her husband and their three children last year cost $150. That’s half as much as she would pay this year for just herself, her husband and their 19-year-old son at the new rate of $100 per adult.
