About Fitness & Recreation
Welcome to Oneida Family Fitness…..
we are a community and corporate fitness facility that is committed to providing health and wellness opportunities for all ages and abilities to acquire a holistic lifestyle.
In 1990, Healthworks relocated to the basement of the Norbert Hill Center.
In 1995, membership continued to grow and the Oneida Nation purchased an additional corporate fitness center in Green Bay (current Gaming Commission location) to provide the Nation with increased services, equipment and convenience. Healthworks daily attendance doubled and total membership increased greatly as a result.
In December 1997, Healthworks relocated both former sites into one large 31,000 sq ft facility (the former West Side YMCA). When the Oneida Nation purchased the Our Lady of Charity building the lease for the YMCA was not renewed. The facility provided an increase in programming to include: a swimming pool, indoor track, gymnasium and additional space and equipment from both sites combined.
In August 1998, the outdoor Ropes & Challenge Course was constructed behind Healthworks to provide experiential therapy to tribal departments and other corporate groups.
In November 2000, Healthworks was renamed to Oneida Family Fitness, Adventures & Recreation; to include the Adventures (Experiential) and the Parks & Recreation area. All three areas provided and continues to provide a variety health initiatives to the Oneida Community.
In Fall 2004, construction begins for additional space and to make the facility ADA elevator accessible. This addition provided 3,000 sq ft of additional space, elevator access to all levels, family changing areas, and other required facility improvements. Construction was completed in 2006.
Today, Oneida Family Fitness has grown to 4,500 members and provides group fitness & aquatic classes, fitness and wellness assessments, strength and cardiovascular equipment, martial art programs, swim lessons, personal training, disease management programs (diabetes, arthritis, obesity, stress), elderly and youth programming (Head start, Oneida Tribal schools, camps, clinics), educational workshops and incentive programs.
