The Gym, LLC

The Gym is located over J&J’s Deli, which means you can work out and then sample some of Juneau’s outstanding cuisine. Much like Pavitt, you’ll find 24/7 access to The Gym via keycard access.

You can get a day pass if you’ll only be in Juneau temporarily or purchase a short-term membership based on the number of visits you hope to make during your stay. Punch cards come in 11-visit or 22-visit options.
