SOMC LIFE Center To Temporarily Close For Renovations

The SOMC LIFE Center in Portsmouth will temporarily close August 11-14 for renovations. The LIFE Center offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor gymnasium, group fitness classes and an indoor pool.

“We have worked hard to organize several projects at the same time, so we will be closed for the least amount of time possible, “ Gary Coovert, director of the SOMC LIFE Center, said. “It is important to keep the center in excellent condition to provide the best services possible. Just like our customers, we need to stay in shape too.”

The pool, Cardiac Rehabilitation and all entities of the LIFE Center will be closed and all fitness classes at the Portsmouth location will be canceled for the duration of the repairs.

While the LIFE Center is closed, SOMC plans to replace flooring in the lobby and refinish the gymnasium, walking track and aerobic room floors as well as reseal the showers in the locker rooms.

The SOMC Rehabilitation, physical therapy and the Friends Community Center will be open during August 11-14. All normal activities and appointments will continue as scheduled.
