VIRTUAL EXERCISE LIBRARY
The skilled Athletic Center team of trainers created a virtual library of exercises for members as they remain(ed) in quarantine along with at-home Facebook Live classes. It remained important for members to stay active and healthy despite quarantine at home.
"Looking back over this pandemic we realize that being members of The Fort Worth Club and the special services The Club has offered during this time we are truly blessed.  The safety measures that The Club put in place reassured us that coming to The Club was the only choice for us.  We have used the Chef’s Market numerous times and have only dined at The Library several times. We are very impressed with the procedures taken from the time we arrived such as the temperature check, spacing of the tables and the continuous cleaning procedures we observed. The Fort Worth Club feels like a home away from home and it was great to be back and see so many familiar faces. We would like to encourage all members to pay The Fort Worth Club a visit."
