Dear Waldron Member:

As you have heard on newscasts, the spread of the COVID-19 virus is an unprecedented event. There now are confirmed cases in the Roanoke Valley. To keep our members, staff and neighbors safe and healthy the Waldron Fitness Center closed on Wednesday, March 18, and will remain closed until at least the end of the month. At that time, we will reassess the situation.

We realize that your dues are automatically drafted from your accounts and want to ensure that you are treated fairly in this regard. As a result, we will suspend all drafts until we reopen. Any remaining dues will be credited to your membership dues when we re-open. We also understand that this may not be a workable solution for some of our members. Upon request, we will issue a refund for the pro-rata portion of your dues. Please email us at to let us know what your preference is.

In the meantime, we are committed to keeping the Waldron facilities clean and sanitized until we re-open. The situation is ever-changing. As we obtain more information, we will adjust our plans as necessary and keep you informed. We are reminded of just how critical it is to support one another during these challenging times.

Please bear with us as we navigate these new waters! To keep you up to date, we will post any new policies or actions relating to the Waldron Fitness and Wellness Center on Facebook. Enjoy our early spring, stay safe and we hope we all will be back to normal operations soon.

Waldron Wellness Center


The Waldron Wellness Center opened in 2007 with a focus on fitness and community health. Since 2013 the Mountain Valley Charitable Foundation has operated the Center as a service to the eastern Montgomery County. This is no surprise since the Foundation was established in 1982 by Dr. George R. Smith, Jr., a local physician who always has had a strong interest in health, nutrition and fitness.

The Center works hard every day provide the best athletic and wellness opportunities and to help its members reach their personal fitness goals. Under the Foundation, the Center has added new and diverse classes to better serve the members’ ages and abilities, more certified instructors, a personal training program, expanded operating and Child Watch hours and new equipment. Included in a membership are weekly group classes, a free child watch for families with children from 6 weeks to 10 years of age, and a varied selection of circuit, weight and stationary training equipment.
