CRC and AC COVID-19 Updates


We moved outside! We opened our outdoor workout space on July 20, 2020 at the CRC and we can’t wait to see you in person! We’re continuing to work hard to evaluate the mandated requirements from the Santa Clara County Public Health Department as well as the State of California requirements. In the information below, you will find details about our reopening, including new processes and protocols, how to reserve your space, and billing information.

We’re excited to bring you a variety of options to continue your health and wellness journey. The Centennial Recreation Center currently offers cardio equipment, group exercise classes, free weights, and weight machines - all outdoors! The Aquatics Center continues to offer outdoor lap swim, aqua fitness, private swim lessons, and additional outdoor group exercise opportunities! And, our virtual live classes and on-demand classes will continue as a membership benefit. 

Requirements and Safety Protocols
The health and safety of our members and teammates is our top priority. We’ve put several new safety protocols in place based on the Santa Clara County Public Health Department and the State of California requirements.

  • All members must make a reservation before coming to the facility. You can make a reservation here. Reservations are required to prevent overcrowding of the workout space available.
  • All members must participate in a verbal symptom check prior to entering the facility or outdoor exercise space and show their membership card or ID.
  • Social distancing must be maintained at all times.
  • All members must clean the equipment before and after use. Each member will receive a spray bottle to clean equipment during their designated workout time. Our facility teammates will be providing additional cleaning throughout the day.
  • Locker Rooms will be closed. Please come ready for your workout and limit personal items.
  • Restrooms will be available and subject to capacity limits.
  • Water refill stations will not be available. Please bring water with you.
  • Face Coverings must be worn at all times while in shared spaces. Face coverings can be removed when a participant’s heart rate is elevated during participation in outside group exercise, in designated workout spaces, or while exercising on cardio equipment. Face coverings are required for participants age 3 and up.

Due to safety considerations, membership transactions will not occur at the CRC and must be done online. If you would like assistance with your account or an online request, please email or call 408-782-2128 Monday-Friday between 9am and 4pm.
