As a result of community feedback, the City of El Monte celebrated the opening of its new Senior Gym in February 2015. The 544 square foot gym is located in the Jack Crippen Multipurpose Senior Center and features two recumbent bikes, two treadmills, two elliptical machines and a multi-gym machine.
The Senior Gym is a safe space for adults age 50 and older to exercise on state of the art equipment for a minimal cost. The fees for El Monte residents are $1 per day or $12 a month. Fees for non residents are $2.50 per day or $25 per month.
