Make a commitment you CAN keep in the New Year. Register today for the best value in Dublin and the best investment in your health — a membership to the DCRC for 2022.

The DCRC is not just an incredible fitness facility, but the central hub of Dublin.

This state-of-the-art facility is available to Dublin residents for special pricing that starts at just $21.83/month for an individual membership and $55.58/month for a family of four (no worries – if you live outside of Dublin, we have great rates for you, too!).

5 Reasons to Choose the DCRC in 2022

We get it. COVID-19 changed all of us — our habits, our levels of comfort, our schedules and so much more. We’re showing how Fitness Is Better Together and invite you to re-engage with the DCRC and all the incredible benefits it provides. Here are just five reasons to consider gifting, renewing or getting your annual membership this season.

  • Our Incredible Staff

    “Knowledgeable,” “Caring,” “Engaging” — these are all words that have been used to describe the DCRC staff. From our personal trainers and fitness staff instructors who will keep you on track with your goals; to our janitorial staff who will keep you safe and the facility spotless; to the incredible arts, crafts and educational teachers who hone your creative skills — they all work together to make the DCRC what it is. A second home and an incredible community asset for Dublin.
  • Accountability and Community

    DCRC functions as the “central hub” of the Dublin community.

    Our members help contribute to that sense of togetherness and community. A DCRC membership is not only an investment in you, but it’s an investment in the Dublin community – by providing financial assistance for swim lessons and camps and subsidizing adaptive and senior programs.

  • Something for Everyone

    Featuring more than 30 fitness classes per week, the Recreation Center has amenities like an indoor track and gymnasium, two pools, stationary bikes and free weights, a Wee Folk Room where patrons’ kids can receive babysitting, premium facility rentals for community gatherings, and the Abbey Theater of Dublin that hosts performances and is also rentable for local businesses or groups to hold meetings and presentations.

    From infants to seniors, anyone can experience classes open to all levels or try specialized sessions, such as senior yoga or functional fitness classes aimed at people recovering from an injury or needing to work on balance.

    As part of growing the Recreation Center’s teen programming, younger people will soon be able to explore something more tailored to their own interests — eSports. The DCRC will host video game competitions, which research shows there are social-emotional benefits for young people to play games together rather than being isolated at home.

  • Safety During the Ongoing Pandemic

    During the Recreation Center’s closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff worked hard to re-tool our operations to keep everyone safe upon reopening in early 2021. When the DCRC was able to open its doors to the community in June, we were ready with enhanced sanitizing measures, reduced capacity rules and other practices to provide a clean and safe environment for members and staff. While our capacity restrictions have lifted, other practices like recommended masking and enhanced sanitizing measures remain, so you can feel safe coming back to re-connect with friends.”
  • Can’t Beat the Price

    This state-of-the-art facility is available to Dublin residents for special pricing that starts at just $21.83/month for an individual membership and $55.58/month for a family of four. There are non-resident rates available, as well.

    Additionally, if you purchase an annual membership, you get a 10% discount on all programs and activities held at the DCRC. Dublin corporate and non-resident pricing are also available. View all membership plans.

    You can build your own membership. Do you just want access to the pools or fitness equipment? Are you more into group fitness classes? We can tailor your fitness interests, so you don’t pay for things that you won’t use.
