USE OF GLENCOE STAIRS
We know the Glencoe stairs is a popular place for getting in a workout. And we are noticing a lot of people are using them during the Club closure. However, due to the limited space on the stairs, it is nearly impossible to have multiple people using them while still ensuring proper social distancing. We encourage you to find alternate areas to do your workouts to keep yourself and others safe. If you see someone else already on the stairs, arrange to have one using the top half and one using the bottom half. Please be respectful of others trying to access the stairs who just want to pass through. We all play a part in trying to #flattenthecurve.

If you have any questions or need to get a hold of anyone at the Club, please email info@glencoe.org.

Please note, that while we are doing our best to assist you during this time, our response times may be varied. We thank you in advance for your ongoing support and patience.  


Update – March 19, 2020



Throughout The Glencoe Club's history, we have faced many challenges — from the 1962 fire to the flood of 2013. In each of those occasions, Glencoe Members and Employees have risen to the occasion.

While we are in uncharted waters, we will come out the other side. The Glencoe Club will reopen and be better than ever before. Stay safe, stay healthy and we look forward to welcoming you back home.
 
THE CLUB IS CLOSED BUT THE COMMUNITY IS NOTE 
Our mission is to create exceptional experiences, and we aim to continue to do that even when the Club is closed. While we may all be keeping our social distances and self-isolating, that doesn’t mean we are alone. Opportunities still exist to connect, to engage, and to build community.

The employees of The Glencoe Club are a dedicated bunch! Together we’ve come up with some creative ways to reach out to our members, stay in touch and help each other make the most of these unique and challenging days.



Get Social on Social!
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Whether it be a workout, a fitness class, a book to read, or a recipe to make, we hope to share some daily doses of inspiration. We also want to hear from you – our members! Share your ideas on how you’re staying healthy, staying active, and staying positive so everyone can get motivated. Simply tag us and include #GlencoeLife.

We are a community inside the Club, and we can still be a community outside the Club.
