hearing loop logo

 We have hearing loops in both of our group fitness studios!
Hearing loops bring clear sounds from a microphone directly into a person's ears. The amazing wireless sound is not degraded by distance, background noise, or reverberation. People can use the system via receiver/headphones (see the Guest Services Desk to check them out), hearing aids with telecoils, and cochlear implants. For the later two, just switch the hearing aid/cochlear implant to the telecoil setting. Please consult your audiologist to ensure your telecoils are properly adjusted. For more information about hearing loops, please visit their website here
