Member benefits

The value of membership

When you join the Harry & Rose Samson Family JCC, you join more than a gym. You join a place of heart, standards, flexibility, and inclusivity (and, yes, a state-of-the-art fitness facility). As a premier destination for wellness, education, and community services – the JCC is the place where friendship comes with fitness and your membership supports community programs that address food insecurity, welcomes individuals with disabilities, and helps us partner to build a healthier Milwaukee.

And while there are lots of classes open to members and non-members alike, there are tons of discounts and members-only programs that make JCC membership the best value in town.

With your membership, you get access to all of our facilities, including:

Habush Fitness Center

Includes private studios for personal training and Pilates, as well as an extensive list of complimentary group fitness classes that includes cardio, strength, yoga, and cycling.

Marcus & Family gyms

The regulation size Marcus Gym features an upper-level, cushioned track with banked corners. Adjacent Family Gym is a great space for younger members to play on a kid-size court.

Peck Aquatic Center

The Peck Aquatic Center features an indoor lap pool, adjacent family pool, and co-ed whirlpool. The newly updated UV-filteration system creates an environment that is easy on skin and eyes.

Locker Rooms

Members have access to free full-service locker rooms for women and men. Plus individual, all-gender, ADA accessible family changing rooms. All locker rooms have direct pool access.
