Dear Waldron Members,

Nothing is more important to us than your health and safety. Like you, we are monitoring the spread of the coronavirus, known as COVID-19. The virus continues to be a concern across the state and the nation. Our area of Virginia is now in the Phase 2 stage of the Coronavirus response. We are so happy that this allowed us to reopen the Waldron Wellness Center on Friday, June 5, with the following provisos regarding gyms and fitness centers:

We will not have classes or child watch until things are more settled. Dues will remain suspended until we can begin to approach full service, unless you ask that they not be. Several members have indicated that they wish to continue paying dues. If you do, please email this information to

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.
