NEW! Touchless Sign-In System for Fitness Centers

MWR Fitness Centers are implementing a touchless sign-in system! ACTION IS NEEDED FROM YOU!

We'll be implementing a touchless sign-in system at Smith Fitness Center starting July 30. The remaining fitness centers will launch these new systems at a later date.

To access the gyms, you need an active WebTrac household account and to activate your ID card with our new system. Two forms of ID will be required to activate your ID card.

There are 3 ways you can create your household:

  1. Visit MWR WebTrac to create an account. Then visit Smith Fitness Center to have your ID card activated.
  2. Visit Smith Fitness Center to fill out an information form. Our staff will input your information during your workout and you can activate your ID card before you leave.
  3. Visit Smith Fitness Center and a staff member will help enter your household information and activate your ID card while you wait.

Note: Account creation and ID card activation will be available at other fitness centers once the new systems become available.

Instructions on how to create a household on WebTrac can be found here.

If you already have an MWR Recreation household account (commonly used for Outdoor Recreation events and pool reservations), you do not need to complete this step.

We recommend accessing the WebTrac website through a desktop or laptop. Mobile devices may not be compatible. For issues pertaining to creating households on WebTrac, please contact Haley Ryan at 706-329-1034 or haley.c.ryan.naf@mail.mil.
