Manny Cantor Center is a project of New York City’s Educational Alliance. Located in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the center is a hub for the local community and offers fitness, education, cultural, and child development programming for its more than 3,000 loyal members. Fitness programming features a full schedule of popular group exercise classes, now offered both in-person and online through virtual and hybrid memberships.
A unique destination for local Manhattan families, MCC’s family programs include an art school, pre-school and children’s camps, a teen center, college preparatory programs and counseling, and education and health programming for older adults. The center’s focus is on diversity and inclusion, a mission sustained through virtual community-building during extended pandemic lockdowns in 2020.
Managed under the community center experts at Exos, MCC Fitness provides wellness industry programming development, staffing, and management for the community center’s diverse member population. Exos services include operational management for the 7,000-square-foot fitness facility, personal training, group exercise programs, and membership marketing strategy, consulting, and implementation.
Formerly known as St. Paul JCC, the Minnesota JCC Capp Center was founded in 1930 by enterprising members of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Jewish community. Throughout the years, the JCC has grown to support a robust and active local community. The current location on St. Paul Avenue was constructed in 1964, with additions in the 1990s to provide for members’ child care and fitness needs. The JCC is a family-focused community center committed to Jewish cultural preservation and education, childcare, fitness, recreation and socialization in a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment. The facility continues to offer health and fitness programming, cultural arts events, and a summer camp at nearby Camp Butwin. Onsite fitness facilities include a gymnasium, aquatics center, and fitness center with classes and programming for all ages, including babysitting services for the children of members.
The JCC partnered with Exos management during a re-launch and facility renovation in 2017. Exos community center management experience helped provide a successful membership presale and grand opening for the revamped fitness and aquatics centers. Staffed and managed by Exos fitness specialists, those facilities continue to be a wellness destination for a highly engaged and active community. Exos Marketing provides consulting, membership recruitment and engagement services, marketing strategy, budget management, and tactical implementation. Since the end of 2021, Exos is managing operations and staffing at the Minnesota JCC Sabes Center.
