Shelter In Place Until April 13th 2020

The City of Austin and Travis and Williamson Counties issued a joint shelter in place order in effect as of 11:59 p.m. on March 24, 2020, continuing until April 13, 2020 (UPDATED! Through April 30, 2020).


All Scott York Fitness memberships have been frozen. No activity can take place during this shelter in place order.  No auto-billing will take place until the shelter in place order has been lifted and we are back to regular activity. (UPDATED!  We are proceeding with virtual strength training.  I am adding clients back slowly).
