February Member of the Month

Melissa Yuryevich joined BAC several years ago when she was new to the area and looking for a place to stay in shape.  We are grateful that she stuck with us for so long, and has brought such joy to both our employees and members—some who have become very close friends.

When she’s not working out, you can usually find Melissa in her kitchen whipping up some yummy recipes and baking goodies that she shares very liberally with all of us.  Believe us, she can COOK!

She is also an avid reader and a wonderful entertainer—willing to share her hospitality, food, and wonderful smile with anyone and everyone.

When she started at BAC she was a regular participant in the Monday and Wednesday night Boot camp classes.  But since then she has tried all of the Group classes—utilizing the variety of times they are offered, and most recently, began taking the Saturday Power Pump class!  Adding this class has challenged her and made her feel stronger every week.

Melissa, thank you for the positive attitude and smiles you share so willingly.  No matter what the day brings, we know you will bring your sunniest self to brighten our days.

Inclement Weather Policy

For the safety and well-being of all those concerned, our weather policy is as follows:

When the Bellingham Public Schools are closed due to weather, BAC will be open with a skeleton staff, but there will be no classes or appointments.

When the Bellingham Public Schools are delayed, BAC will be open, but there will be no A.M. classes or appointments.

In the event of extreme weather, we may find it necessary to close the club. Please check the website, social media, call in, or listen to your local radio station for information. This is a very rare occurrence but is sometimes necessary for the safety of our members and employees.

During the Bellingham Public School weekends training days and Holiday break: December 21st-January 5th, you will need to go to our website to get the updates.  In general, we start checking the weather at about 4:00 am and make the call by 4:30 am.  We make every effort to get staff in to open the clubs on time, but please be patient.  Brian Porter and Cathy Buckley usually are making the rounds picking staff up and transporting them into the clubs.  The purpose of our policy is to not put staff in danger and to keep unnecessary cars off the roads until the snowplows and sanders can make the rounds.  Thanks for your patience during weather events.

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots

Our annual Toys for Tots toy drive begins Monday, December 2nd.  You will notice the bins in the lobbies of both clubs.  Our members have always been generous in the past and this year will be no exception.  As a reward for your generosity, we are giving you the opportunity to take advantage of 2019 club dues rates if you pre-pay for the year.  We are looking forward to seeing all the great toys you bring in.
