Dear TRC Community,
We are stoked beyond measure to announce that we will begin the next phase of construction at TRC-Durham on September 1st, 2021! This much-anticipated new space will include an additional 17,000 sq. ft. of terrain to include 47 ft. climbing walls, dedicated climbing training areas, and unique spaces dedicated to fitness and yoga. Check out this video rendering of the final product (new construction areas shown at the 1:35 minute mark).
We are excited to be able to begin Phase II, but unfortunately construction will directly impact our fitness and yoga space sooner than anticipated. We will need to close off the back section of the building in late August to allow us to prepare for construction. Essentially, we will be replacing the existing footing system to accommodate the taller walls, while also removing parts of the existing roof to accommodate the new tall building. It’s a complicated project, but we have a fantastic team to help ensure this is done as seamlessly as possible.
Because this space will be no longer available for fitness and yoga, we have partnered with our neighbor, Planet Fitness, to help lessen the inconvenience. Planet Fitness is located in the same complex, three storefronts over. TRC Members can sign up online for a membership with Planet Fitness using the promo code TRC. TRC will then credit your TRC membership account to 100% offset the monthly cost of your Planet Fitness membership until we are able to provide a full fitness space again. With a PF Classic Card, you’ll get 24/7 home club access, free fitness training, and tons of cardio options. This offer is valid only at this specific Planet Fitness location and you must sign up by September 30th, 2021. Take a virtual tour of Planet Fitness here.
Additionally, we are still planning to run a modified fitness program to the best of our ability. Our offerings will change and evolve over time based on the construction timelines, weather, and schedules. The best way to find the current list of classes and times is by visiting our Fitness and Yoga Calendar.
We’re grateful for everyone’s continued patience and support. This is an eagerly-anticipated project and would not be possible without you! I am confident that this will be a premier facility and well worth the wait. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions in the meantime.
