ONLINE BALANCE PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS:
Membership fees were last increased in January 2019. Over the last several years, we have had increased operating costs.
Membership freezes were originally implemented when we billed every four months. Because we now bill monthly, this option is no longer needed. If you need to take a break, simply cancel and return whenever you like. Existing freezes will be honored.
- Freeze requests received prior to January 1, 2023 will be honored if within existing freeze policy (see below). We will stop accepting freeze requests on January 1, 2023.
- A pass freeze is extended members for a minimum of two months to a maximum of six months. Freeze to begin on the 1st of the month and end on the last day of the month. This request must be received prior to the 26th of the upcoming billing month. If you request to return before the two month minimum, you will be charged for the months the pass was frozen.
After evaluating all of our membership types and benchmarking with other communities, we decided this category was no longer in high demand. Only a small percentage of our members were in this category. Those members will be automatically charged the new Non-Resident rates.
You will be automatically charged the new Non-Resident rates starting on January 1, 2023.
We emailed an announcement of all changes to all current members on October 31, 2022. We also send a hard copy through the mail to the address on file. It is possible your email address or mailing address is not up to date, or that our message went to your junk mail. Please call us at 248-524-3484 to check.
Member cancellations may be submitted online

Anyone 14 years of age and older is allowed in the Fitness Room. We will also allow a child who is 13 to workout providing they attend one of our fitness room orientations.

Current fitness classes can be viewed in the latest Recreation Guide
. Those with current/active memberships receive a discount off of these classes.
Occasionally throughout the year the fitness room experiences a larger than normal volume of pass holders. During these times we ask that workouts be kept to 30 minutes per machine if others are waiting. Once your 30 minutes is up you are welcome to move to another machine.
Annual passes and the prepaid portion (current month) of a recreation pass are non-refundable. Annual members will be sent a letter during the final month of membership and given the option to renew. If the pass holder does not wish to continue their membership, then they do not need to respond and their pass will automatically expire. For members who pay monthly through our EFT process, they must complete a cancellation request
before the 26th of the billing month to prevent their account from being charged for the upcoming month. The EFT billing date is on the 1st of the month. Your checking or credit card account will continue to be charged until the cancellation request is submitted. Telephone or verbal instructions are not considered official requests.
The City of Troy charges a NSF fee of $25 for any financial transaction that is returned by your bank as unpayable. This would include checks or EFT transactions involving your bank account or credit card. Please notify the Recreation Department if your account number or credit card's expiration date changes by completing a new EFT form as soon as possible. This will help ensure that you will not be charged an NSF fee.
