Pitney Bowes Foundation Wellness Center
The Pitney Bowes Foundation Wellness Center at CT State Norwalk is a state-of-the-art exercise facility that is committed to improving the general health and well being of all patrons. We encourage safe and effective exercise in an effort to improve one’s quality of life.
The Wellness Center is free for all CT State Norwalk faculty, staff, students, Lifetime Learners, security, cleaning, and cafeteria personnel. You must have an affiliation with the college to use our facilities. Currently, we do not offer community memberships. Registration to use the Wellness Center entails submitting a completed New Member Packet.
All first-time members must complete a new member packet prior to using the Pitney Bowes Foundation Wellness Center. This packet is available at the front desk in the Wellness Center and can also be downloaded by clicking on the link above. The first page of this document is a medical form called the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). All medical information provided is kept confidential and locked in our front office. It is asked that this form be honestly and completely filled out on both sides. The PAR-Q must be renewed every three years and qualified professional staff reserve the right to request medical clearance if deemed appropriate. Those patrons who require medical clearance cannot use the facility until clearance is received and processed. The second page requires signing off on our mandatory rules and regulations for facility usage.
